A little light reading for you – A Ten Year Reading Plan

Following is a ten year reading plan provided in the Great Books of the Western World first edition library of 1952. The works are organized by the year that they appear in the reading plan. Works shown with hypertext links are available online. Another such list is maintained by Ken Roberts.

Library Thing

I bought a lifetime membership to Library Thing today. If you are not familiar with it, it is a way to catalog your books and see who else has those books and get recommendations based on your library.
For a homeschool mom this can be an intimidating task but I figure by adding 10-20 books a day I should be done in sometime in 2010!

If you use Library Thing you can add me using my mjpuzzlemom name.

Books as comfort food…..

The question posed by Booking Through Thursday this week is ” What do you read for comfort when the world is crashing all around you? For this meme theBible doesn’t work. “

I have a few books/series I turn to… they include:

TH White’s The Once and Future King

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit

Stephen Donaldson’s The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever” & “The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant”

O.K. I am a sci-fi/fantasy buff!

I find that I can pick these up over and over again and get lost in them.

To participate in Booking Through Thursday, blog about your favorite books as comfort food and leave a comment HERE
