The Classics Spin #30

Time for a new spin!

At your blog, before Sunday, June 12, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

On Sunday June 12, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by August 7, 2022.

Here are 20 titles I have selected from my 3rd list of 50 classics.
It might indeed be a challenge, as I made a list not counting any of the 20 books I’m supposed to read for the 20 books of summer challenge.

1 Antal Szerb Journey by Moonlight (1937)
2 Antal Szerb The Pendragon Legend (1934)
3 Charles Williams Descent into Hell (1937)
4 Colette Sido
