Read old books: "Every age has its own outlook."



"It is a good rule, after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between. If that is too much for you, you should at least read one old one to every three new ones. Every age has its own outlook."
          ~ C.S. Lewis, from his introduction to Athanasius’s On the Incarnation

    Good advice. Also own books you can hold. Not something downloaded onto your computer which will later erased by the censors.

We welcome thoughtful disagreement.
Thanks to a few abusers however, we (ir)regularly moderate comments.
We *will* delete comments with insulting or abusive language, unless they're entertaining. We will also delete totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. We are much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
