A Reading List for the 22nd Century and Beyond

Daniel Blackman at the National Catholic Register asks Which books would you include if you had to add to the list of Great Books, and how would you decide?
"Biola University’s Torrey Honors Institute, University of San Francisco’s St. Ignatius Institute, the Universities of Dallas and Michigan, Notre Dame, Boston College, and the newer Christendom and Thomas Aquinas Colleges all offer students the opportunity to study and discuss Great Books authors.

Further afield you’ll find the Catholic University of Portugal offering a similar course, while the UK’s King’s College London, Bristol, Leeds, Exeter and Essex universities now offers a BA in liberal arts, which look a lot like a revised, modern, Great Books degree.

Which brings us back to our original question: which books would you include if you had to add to the list, and how would you decide?"
