So, the first week of school is winding down and I once again find myself with a bill for several hundred dollars worth of books. This time, however, I have quite a few on my list that I’m sure I will enjoy:

The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer

Paradise Lost by Milton

Pilgrim’s Progress by Bunyan

The Way of the World by Congreve

Gulliver’s Travels by Swift

Pride & Prejudice by Austen

Mill on the Floss by Eliot

To the Lighthouse by Woolf

The Waste Land by Eliot

I also picked up copies of The Mezzanine by Nicholson Baker and Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss for my personal enjoyment.

And that’s all for now. I have some reading to do.

Was humming this earlier today:


This World Is Not My Home

This world is not my home,

I’m just a passing thru,

My treasures are laid up

Somewhere beyond the blue;

The angels beckon me

From heaven’s open door.

And I can’t feel at home

In this world any more.

O Lord, You know,

I have no friend like You,

If heaven’s not my home,

Then, Lord, what will I do?

The angels beckon me

From heaven’s open door.

And I can’t feel at home

In this world any more.

Just up in gloryland

We’ll live eternally

The saints on ev’ry hand

Are shouting victory,

Their songs of sweetest praise

Drift back from heaven’s shore,

And I can’t feel at home

In this world any more.
