    Anyone here read Things Fall Apart?

    I read it in english literature in college. I personally greatly enjoyed the book. I believe Chinua Achebe is a great writer.

    I could reccomend several books.

    Yes, but it's been a LONG time. I don't recall liking it very much.
    "We see unmistakably the sort of universe in which we have all along been living, and must come to terms with it. If we had foolish un-Christian hopes about human culture, they are now shattered. If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon." - C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

    Fair enough. I have been trying to read more. I got a collection of MLKs writings. I try to read the bible on a more regular basis. I enjoy reading I find it edifying. I also find it enjoyable.

    I could recommend my "Proverbs Reading Program" to you!

    (only mine in the sense that I often use it)

    Whatever day of the month it is - read that Chapter in Proverbs. Today is the 10th, so you'd read chapter 10.

    I like this because, if you miss a day or two, or even a couple weeks, just look to see what day of the month it is, and read that chapter.

    (yes, you won't be able to read all chapters every month)
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I think you recommended this before. I must admit it is clever.

    Yeah, I like it for two reasons...

    A) We need wisdom, and Proverbs is chock full of it
    2) Even when I get out of the habit of reading Proverbs, I can always 'snap back' to it immediately.

    I've seen some people really dislike it but I thought it was good.
