What time do any of us have left? Forty years? Thirty? Twenty? Ten? Months, Days, or minutes. We know not when, etc.
How many books can we read in a year? 53? 20? 2?
Do the math.
How many books do I have left to read? 200? 100? If I try hard, don’t reread (which I do). How to pick, what to pick, where to pick.
So, give me books you think we should read before we die? I’ll offer some ideas myself as the thread grows or dies). In other words, what book is a must read before one croaks? Or what author? What book would you think you would have needed to read, or told people they needed to read before going to that great library in the sky.
