Classics Club Spin #15

I’m late to the game by over a week. Once again the Classics Club has challenged readers to make a list of 20 books on your Classics TBR, then a random number is issued, and one is to read that work by May 1st. I checked the blog and spoiled the number surprise for myself. Below I’ve listed 20 classics I’d love to read and then I’ll use a random number generator to pick a number and assign myself a book. Here we go:

  • Stoner by John Williams
