    Awesome list! I can’t help but notice there are no relatively old authors… If you have read that much Lewis you will know he suggests, “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.”

    Have you ever read John Ruskin on Economy? Try Unto This Last
