My stack is getting higher... just purchased a set of books I've wanted for a few years and have been sort of watching for... Great Books of the Western World. The set I will be receiving was from a friend and fellow home schooling mom in southern Louisiana. It is the older edition and only includes 54 books, as opposed to the current edition (which has 60 books). I'll pull out my old copy of Mortimer Adler's How to Read a Book and try to read more effectively...
Happily, the collection contains many books I've long wished to read and never got to... among them:
Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica
Cervantes' Don Quixote
Jane Austen's Emma
Dickens' Little Dorrit
Darwin's Origen of the Species and The Descent of Man
Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karazamov
plus many others...
