...so of course I was drawn to this column: Mike S. Adams: Summer reading
I think he is exactly right: focus less on current issues and modern "literature", and reorient toward the classics.
So, just for grins, I went out to the Sparknotes site and printed off their list of titles. 159 in all. I have read 68 of them. Actually, I've read more than that, but some of them I read so long ago that I no longer have any useful memory of what they were about. So I didn't count them.
I think I'll pick up a few this weekend at 1/2 Price Books!
But pretty soon, I will have printed out more reading lists than I have books! (And that's a lot.) Maybe I'm a book LIST collector, more than a book collector.
