The Inklings

The Inklings was an Oxford writers’ group which included C. S. Lewis, Roger Lancelyn Green and J. R. R. Tolkien. From late 1933, they met on Thursday evenings at Lewis’s college rooms at Magdalen, where they would read and discuss various material, including their unfinished manuscripts.  143 more words

How To Read The Classics

There are a handful of books about reading books, such as Mortimer Adler’s How To Read A Book, Harold Bloom’s How To Read And Why, and probably my favorite in the genre The Pleasures of Reading in An Age of Distraction by Alan Jacobs, that have really helped readers become better readers. 388 more words
