Reading Genres

“one must be a wise reader, to quote wisely and well.” A. Bronson Alcott

After due consideration of the various reading genres and tags available, along with the consideration of so much to read, the time has come to add structure to tracking my reading. Henceforth forward, the rotation will be Prize Winners, Personal, Professional and the Harvard Classics.

The last book fully read, Lincoln Hall’s Dead Lucky is classifed as Personal. The book on deck is Strengths Finder 2.0 is classified as Professional. I’m at a stalled point so far as reading it, right now, need 35 minutes of undisturbed time to take the online assessment. So the active alternative is The Harvard Classics – Lectures.

The most comprehensive and well-researched anthology of all time comprises both the 50-volume “5-foot shelf of books” and the the 20-volume Shelf of Fiction. Together they cover every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore and historical subject through the twentieth century.

I have the 50-volume set, will need to find/buy the 20-Volume. That ought to just about fill up one full vertical bookshelf.
