Lory @ Emerald City Book Review

Most of my "books of the year" were old! I think I used to read more new releases when my library was 10 minutes away instead of 45 minutes. Thanks for sharing your favorites from both sides of the temporal divide.


C.S. Lewis, my Christian mentor through his books, wrote that he recommends reading 2 old books to every new book. I think that is the ratio, anyhow, the old books have much to offer us.


"Old books" meaning never read before or old friends? I read more and more of the latter, probably my ratio is 4 old to one new. This is partly because my favorites are Victorian, long novels and the print will one day defeat me--a sad time to be coming.

One of my favourite books is ' Tthe Silent Traveller in Oxford' Chaing Lee is such a beautiful writer and so observant.
