    This little gem originally published in 1917 my edition 1924 was designed as a one year course of study that would provide it s reader with knowledge worthy of a four year course of study at university with 22 accompaning books.What is so worthy by reading this tiny little volume you may ask Well, let me tell you There are two essays in the beginning about reading The first Books For Study And Reading by Lyman Abbott claims that books provide three services They may be ornaments, tools, or friends Ornamental books it seems are neither of the latter He says, In every home there ought to be books that are friends In every day, at least in every week, there ought to be some time which can be spent in cultivating their friendship This is reading, and reading is very different from study The second On Books and Reading by the same he goes on and on beautifully about some of the stories you would encounter in the course A statement found within Every book leads, if you let it have its way, to another book Then he quotes Maurice Francis Egan as saying The best guide to books is a book itself I had never heard of this Egan but now I have because I logged onto Gutenberg and started reading his Confessions of a Booklover Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful One last little morsel from him Books are the strong tincture of experience They are to be taken carefully, drop by drop, not carelessly gulped down by the bottleful Therefore, if you would get the best out of books, spend a quarter of an hour in reading, and threee quarters of an hour in thinking over what you have read That s some food for thought I think I ll take the challenge.

    This little volume made me so happy I loved Lyman Abbot s essays, Books for Study and Reading and On Books and Reading It saddens me to think that I shall have to die with thousands of books unread that would have given me an unblemished happiness I will tell you a secret I have never read King Lear, and have purposely refrained from doing so If I were ever very ill I would only need to say to myself You can t die yet, you haven t read Lear That would bring me around I know it would Abbot quoting Mr Mifflin, Christopher Morley s prince of booksellers.
