“A capacity, and taste, for reading, gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others. It is the key, or one of the keys, to the already solved problems. And not only so. It gives a relish, and facility, for successfully pursuing the [yet] unsolved ones.” – Abraham Lincoln, September 30, 1859

  1. You should add to the list “Life and Death in Shanghai” By: Nien Cheng – it’s a great read and fits with the theme you have going here.

  2. Pingback: Everyday Christianity in America | Consider Again·

  3. Atlas Shrugged and Intellectuals and Society are two books I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Rand’s philosophy was a bit afield from my own conclusions in some areas, but we’re on the same page with regard to allowing those who are productive to keep their money and invest it as they see fit. Great list! I see a couple other books to add to my “to-read” shelf. 🙂

    • Agreed. Rand is way off in morality terms, but it is always interesting to challenge yourself and read something that makes you think. Glad you liked the list!
