Light Reading

OK, a good head cold is what we get for sitting in a draft. So, instead of celebrating Christmas, we wind up in bed all week. The upside was a chance to make major progress on finishing "Atlas Shrugged", the latest addition to our list of recommended reading.

The full list, as it stands now:

It Can't Happen Here
Animal Farm
Brave New World
Lord of the Flies
None Dare Call it Conspiracy
Catcher in the Rye
Atlas Shrugged

The list was intended to be a recommendation for anyone in high school or college. Heaven only knows what they're reading in high school these days ("Dick & Jane"?) and we don't think we want to know what's being stuffed down their throats in college. We read "Animal Farm", "Brave New World", "Catcher in the Rye", and "Lord of the Flies" when we was in high school a lot of years ago.

"Catcher in the Rye" really has no political significance; we just thought we'd throw it in to tweak the twits who've tried to get it removed (sometimes successfully) from high school libraries.
