Reading queue

I have just finished The Collector by John Fowles (review forthcoming) and am currently reading In Search of Paul by John Dominic Crossan and Jonathan L. Reed.

The following is my reading queue as currently envisioned.  Please note that it is subject to change without notice, especially beyond the first one or two items.

  1. Stillwell and the American Experience in China by Barbara Tuchman
  2. Lilith by George MacDonald
  3. Shadow : Five Presidents and the Legacy of Watergate by Bob Woodward
  4. Journal of a Soul by Pope John XXIII
  5. And seven others…

Click here for a list of books that I have recently finished.

    Jacob,
    What does the title of this weblog mean? What languate is it? Latin?

  2. jacob1207 Says:

    This blog’s motto, Usus libri, non lectio prudentes facit, is indeed Latin.

    It is translated variously as “The use, not the reading, of a book makes men wise” or “Use, not reading merely reading creates sagacious people.” In either case, the point is that understanding and applying what you read is what’s important, not simply passively reading.
