Reading Traditions

I recently heard of a teacher who reads "War and Peace" every year.

A friend of mine does the same with "Treasure Island." Until several years ago, my annual read was "The Wind in the Willows." I think I'll revive that habit.

Is there any book that is one of your traditions?

Emerson's essays - especially Self Reliance - and Lord of the Rings.

Every year since 1983, between Christmas and New Year, I read William F. Buckley's Overdrive.

"Blood of The Lamb" by Peter DeVries.
How precious, the child. How unforgiving, unpredictable, but not cruel, life can be.

I've never had a like tradition, but if I did, the first book that came to mind was The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning.

Keep up the great work Michael.
