2008 Reading List

Anna’s Amibitious Reading List for 2008:

G.K. Chesterton

          Utopia of Usurers

C.S. Lewis

          God in the Dock

Shakespeare

          Taming of the Shrew

Maria Edgeworth

          Moral Tales

The Federalist Papers

The United States Constitution & Bill of Rights

The Declaration of Independence

Salt, A World History, Mark Kurlansky

Mary Barton, Elizabeth Gaskell

Created to Be His Help Meet, Debi Pearl

Paradise Lost, John Milton

1776, David McCullough

1984, George Orwell

Nourishing Traditions, Sally Fallon

God’s Appointed Customs, Barney Kasdan

God’s Appointed Times, Barney Kasdan

You can find out how I do over in the “Current Reading List” page. Since it is an election year and we are pretty active with the Ron Paul campaign, I thought the three founding documents of our nation would be appropriate to add. Maria Edgeworth came highly rated as an English/Irish contemporary of Jane Austen. She wrote many short stories with a “morality” component. And a year could hardly pass without reading something by C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton. 😉

My cold is nearly gone, thank the Lord! Still have a little nagging cough but overall was able to function today.

    Found this page doing a search for Edgeworth. I am from Edgeworthstown, where Maria spent much of her life – she had a fascinating family and is said to have influenced the writings of Walter Scott and Turgenev.

Quotes

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
