About

Blogging about the great books, old and new, and the ideas they entertain. The site also provides free access to great books in the public domain.

What is a great book? A text that continues to be talked about, written about, and taught. The books with staying power. The best written, most beautiful, most stimulating, most worthwhile. Since I’m a child of the Western tradition (Euro-centric and American-centric), you’ll find the selections here skewing that way, but I will also post works from other cultures as I come across them. Every cultural tradition has produced great books deserving of attention and discussion.

The site will grow organically. You’ll see posts from and about authors I’ve read before or am currently reading. As such, the site is a partial log of my reading life.
