An idea: A personal canon of books.
Ruth, at A Great Book Study, writes:
Every avid reader has a particular and unique way of composing a personal canon. The list is characteristic of who you are. It says, “These are my books.”
What sorts of books are in one’s personal canon? Again, from Ruth:
Some of these books have affected my worldview, some shook me to my core, some left an imprint on my heart, and others changed my life forever. These books matter to me.
It was Jillian, Ruth tells us, who inspired her to compose her personal canon. And now Ruth has inspired me. And, perhaps, I shall inspire you.
What books would you list in your personal canon of books?
