Yes, the Classics Club have announced another spin. The challenge for classics lovers is to create a list of 20 titles and when the random spin is announced next Friday, the challenge is to read the correspondingly numbered title by May 1. See more at https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com
Since my readings for this blog are in roughly chronological order, I am loathe to skip titles to get to the one matching the number, so what I have tried in the past is to read all titles up to the one matching the number by the deadline, and have been mostly successful so far.
I was going to give it a miss this time, as I have a few things on my plate right now, but what the heck – I happen to have twenty titles left of the 4th century (most of them Aristotle) so maybe this will help push me through. Here goes…wish me luck.
|1||Historia animalium (History of animals)||Aristotle|
|2||De partibus animalium (On parts of animals)||Aristotle|
|3||De motu animalium (On motion of animals)||Aristotle|
|4||De generatione animalium (On generation of animals)||Aristotle|
|11||The Athenian Constitution||Aristotle|
|14||Enquiry into plants||Theophrastus|
|17||Elements of Geometry (c. 300 BC)||Euclid|
|20||The Old Testament : the Prophets|
