To be without a book is to be as an animal. Some of my favorites are The Peloponnesian War (Thucydides), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Victor Hugo), The Bridge of San Luis Rey (Thornton Wilder), and The Life of Johnson (Boswell). The most influential book I have read in my life is Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis.

Currently reading: Thermopylae
