To read

Reading chair

I definitely need an automatic reading machine like this one for real books, alongside my Kindle.

I rounded up all the books around the house this morning that were recently read, part read, or waiting to be read. It was quite a haul. Some of them are old friends rather than new acquaintances that come down from the shelves to join me, some are books of friends that shelves seem too impersonal for, some are heavyweights that take time to digest, others lighter but not yet tasted. And some are just oozing with anticipation… I wonder what your own list would look like?

One thought on “To read

  1. Do add David bentley Hart’s ‘Atheist Delusions’ to the list, if you haven’t already previously listed it. It is a resounding answer to the books by Richard Dawkins and others.
