Spinning the Classics

Classics Club is having another spin. I love this part of the club, but as I have fewer than 20 books left to read on my list (after removing Swanns Way and The Decameron both of which I want to read but can't commit to without being able to clear more reading time than I have at the moment) I had to get creative about the list. Hence the introduction of "Free spaces." The number will be chosen on Friday, March 10 and the challenge is to finish the selected book by May 1.
Here is my list:
  1. The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir [1949]
  2. The Sword of Shannara, Terry Brooks [1977] 
  3. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler, Italo Calvino [1979] 
  4. Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1), Orson Scott Card [1985] 
  5. The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky [1880]
  6. On Green Dolphin Street, Sebastian Faulks [2001] 
  7. The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles [1969] 
  8.             FREE SPACE -read whichever you want
  9. The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne [1850]
  10. Catch-22, Joseph Heller [1961]
  11. A Bell for Adano, John Hersey [1944]
  12. Dubliners, James Joyce [1914]
  13. Portrait of a Lady, Henry James 
  14. A Separate Peace, John Knowles [1959]
  15.               FREE SPACE -read whichever book T picks 
  16. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Haruki Murakami [1994] 
  17. Wide Sargasso Sea, Jean Rhys [1966]
  18. The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger [1951]
  19. Eminent Victorians, Lytton Strachey [1918]
  20. The Robber Bridegroom, Eudora Welty [1942]
