"A Classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say." ~Italo Calvino
While I can always think of things to make: quilts, drawing, paintings, ... I do sometimes struggle to write. Usually I just start writing and eventually come to my point, go back and delete the first part and then develope my thoughts and ideas. Writing is a hard thing I want to do. It is good to do hard things!
When I read I can usually come up with ideas to write about. I came across this list of Thirty Books Every College Student Should Read This list isn't perfect, it doesn't include anything by C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Solzenitszyn, and others I can think of. I think my children have read most of the classics in his first list, at the classical Christian school where they have gone.
I love to read book reviews and to see the top ten or top hundred books different people list as favorites.I like books about books. Here are some I like:
Invitation to the Classics, A Guide to Books You've Always Wanted to Read by Cowan and Guinness
Honey for a Woman's Heart by Gladys Hunt
Great Books of the Christian Tradition by Terry W. Glaspey
