SSU Reading List For This Fall

EusebiusI recently received the reading list for this fall’s classes at St. Stephen’s University – and I must say I am very, very excited!

Most of the books are ones that I have not read before – and better still – they are ones that have been on my must-read-one-day list.  Life is good!  😀
