So many books, so little time is a common lament heard amongst we bibliophiles. Someone once asked me, "What's a 'good book'?" The short answer is: That depends. The longer answer may vary as widely as the Grand Canyon. So in the interest of "reading time well spent" I recently compiled a list of Books to Grow By, which is featured on the Book Shelf page of my blog.
This list includes classic, contemporary, just 4 fun + some surprises. (Note: I simply cannot abide ‘stream of consciousness’ prose a la Faulkner. Ditto Wuthering Heights and The Great Gatsby.) You’ll also find evidence of my conviction that some of the finest literature ever written can be found in the Children’s Section. Selections appear in alpha order by title. List not exhaustive, but it's a start.
