Our reading itinerary reflects the following:
~ I believe a novel should ask more questions than it can answer—otherwise the novel is not doing its job.
~ William Faulkner in his 1949 Nobel Prize acceptance speech said the writer's duty is to remind a person of the courage, and honor, and hope, and pride, and compassion, and pity and sacrifice, which have been the glory of our past. Our book selections mirror this sentiment.

"My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read." – Abraham Lincoln
