The meta-literary bloggers website Classics Club (https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com/author/theclassicsclubblog/) is running another spin starting Monday June 6 and finishing August 1. The idea is to pick 20 of your to-read books, and when the spin number (1-20) is announced on Monday, to read your corresponding book before the August deadline.
My spin on their spin (which I achieved – just – last time) is to read up to their number before the deadline e.g. if the number is 14, I have to read all books 1-14 on my list. Since I have at least 20 Greek plays in order to read next before striking out into the more intellectual forests of Plato and Aristotle, this seems a good way of pushing through. Wish me luck!
So my next twenty books are, in order,
|3||The women of Troy||Euripides|
|6||Iphigenia among the Taurians||Euripides|
|10||The Phonecian Women||Euripides|
|14||Oedipus at Colonus||Sophocles|
|17||Iphigenia at Aulis||Euripides|
|19||The Ecclesiazusae (Assemblywomen)||Aristophanes|
