Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady love to read great books to stay in touch with the "Great Conversation" discussing ideas.  Here is a snippet of a discussion on the "Great Conversation" in the Great Books series.  "To put an end to the spirit of inquiry that has characterized the West it is not necessary to burn the books.  All we have to do is to leave them unread for a few generations.  On the other hand, the rivival of interest in these books from time to time throughout history has provided the West with new drive and creativeness.  Great books have salvaged, preserved, and transmitted the tradition on many occasions similar to our own."  This sounds like a great reason to shut off the TV set and get reading.  Reading the right books will change your life.  What do you think?  What reasons would you have to improve your life?  Identify them and get reading!
