‘…excessive reading’

I happen to remember this quote from the new Pride and Prejudice movie – “…must improve her mind through excessive reading.” It quite adequately describes my impetus for engaging upon a course of ‘serious study’, another quote by another Austen character.

Here is my book list:

1. Diplomacy – Henry Kissinger

2. Russia’s Empires – Phillip Longworth

3. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich – William L. Shirer

4. Basic Economics – Thomas Sowell

5. No Ordinary Time – Doris Goodwin

6. Historical Linguistics – Lyle Campbell

7. The Art of War (again) – Sun Tzu


I positively writhe in anticipation.
