The holiday season may offer us the opportunity to engage in some reading and reflection somewhat removed from our legal endeavors, though certainly relevant in the great scheme of things. For many, this time of year invites us to think about our personal growth. Which books appeal to us is undoubtedly a personal matter. At any rate here is my short list of books that I have returned to over the years. None of these is particularly dense reading.
J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey.
The Way of a Pilgrim (unknown author)
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
Dan Millman, The Way of a Peaceful Warrior
C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce

The Great Divorce is an excellent book, and takes just a few hours to get through. The book was assigned for a class I took on Death and Dying at Northern Iowa and I enjoyed it so much that, as soon as I finished it, I turned right back to page 1 and read it again.
I don't re-read too many books, unfortunately, but there's definitely some merit in doing so.
