With a floppitygillion new books being published daily, it’s hard to keep books that have stood the test of time from being pushed to the side. Today, I’m joined by my wife, Emily, to talk about how I try to maintain a healthy balance of new and old books in another format-breaking episode of Reading Writers.
In this episode, you’ll hear
- My practical strategies for reading older books;
- Emily’s admission to having a utilitarian reading style;
- Where to find classic books online; and
- Why libraries are super-helpful.
A few of the books and resources discussed in this episode
- “Fundamentalism” and the Word of God by J.I. Packer
- All of Grace by Charles Spurgeon
- The Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
- Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
What’s happening on the next episode of the podcast?
Next week, I’ll hopefully be returning to our regular format with a new series of guests.
