Books I Want Youth to Discover
Once again, sort of a hard post for me. Too many books, thank goodness... :)
There are some books I think kids of all ages should have fun with...Little Women, Swiss Family Robinson, many modern ones I don't know of.
There are some every day classics that I still think even today are a good read and a good thing to have in one's repertoire of reading...Grapes of Wrath, Lord of the Flies, The Leatherstocking Tales, The Good Earth, Jane Ayre, Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged and hundreds more I could list.
The idea is to never be done. For there to be more books than one can get read, ever.
Someday what we thought were classics will be all forgotten and dusty and much newer books will be the "classics".
*But the truth is...I don't think it matters as much WHAT the youth of today read. I think it matters that they READ.
