It is that time for another Classics Club SPIN.
1. Make a list of twenty books I want to read that are on my Classics List.
2. Wait for the SPIN (which happened yesterday, but I haven't checked yet)
3. Read the book that corresponds with the SPIN number.
My list: (Note how many "Something by" books I have. I am leaving room so that I can make a selection based on availability of books at library and my interest of the day.)

Looks like I will be reading something by Kafka.
Based on library availability and accessibility I've selected:
I'm actually pretty glad about this selection. We went to Prague a few years back and I was disappointed in myself that I had never read anything by this famous Czech writer. Also, I like reading short stories during the summer. They fit well with my travel plans.
