“There is creative reading as well as creative writing.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
OnTheRoad Reading Program 2013 is ready to post – finally! Reading lists, in my experience, are in the same category as New Years resolutions. They seem easy at first and then they become “not so easy” when you put them into action.
My first draft was indisputably brilliant. Then I made the colossal mistake of reviewing it the next day. What was to be mere review became a full revision; followed by several more review/revision exercises. After all, constructing a reading program for the coming twelve months is a massive undertaking, especially when there are so many remarkable books from which to choose. In my exuberance, I added more books with each amendment, all of which are rather substantial in nature.
I have posted OTR Reading Program 2013, under the heading “Reading Programs.” I anticipate that there were be further iterations as more recommendations come my way throughout the year. Reading is the conduit for transformation. I have packed 2013 with a wonderful assortment of books that will give me many hours of enjoyment. C.S. Lewis once said many years ago: “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
