  1. That is one heck of a reading list. How in the world are you going to read all these? More importantly, where are you going to get all these books?

  2. Tim,

    Believe it or not, those are actually all books he has already read in the past calendar year! Our pastor just mentioned Jack this evening after the Epiphany service that he always seems to have a book in his hand. Also, believe it or not, we actually own a large number of those. The rest came from various university, college, and public libraries. I would recommend trying inter-library loan for books you can't get at your local library. Jack and I both use it extensively.
