- Watership Down, Richard Adams - This was a new one to me and I wish I'd read it long ago. It's been on my shelf for ages but for some reason I'd never taken it down. A huge shame. The book is told from the point of view of rabbits and it's something of a quest book. A very fine book.
- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Robert Pirsig - This is an odd book but also very well worth reading. I expected something of a combination of biker and hippie but it really wasn't either. Most if it is a long search for the essence of quality. The last 100 pages or so deal with elements of both Greek and German philosophy and tied in directly with elements of the Great Books. Very thought provoking.

Books Read in March
Another month done and this one seemed like a busy one for reading. It turned out that I didn't read all that much outside of the Great Books reading list.
