Things to Read List


RECOGNIZING, at the quarter-centenary age of twenty-five, the following outstanding points:

a) his mortality
b) a projected annual consumption of approximately 17 books (partially read documents and literature not withstanding)
c) a cumulative consumption of approximately 300 books
d) a need to fulfil purpose and direction within his lifespan

JMP has estimated that around another thousand books are to be read before his passing. (GOD's will not withstanding)

THEREFORE, JMP has determined he will compose a queue, to be filled by books, documents, and general works of literature that will fulfil purpose and direction. This, bearing in mind any changes in personality, publication of new literature, or revelation of new material.

Here is the list:
