A good reading plan for students is to read one classic novel per month. It really doesn’t matter which books a student reads, as long as they are high-quality books! I agree with the approach to literature set forth by Adam Andrews of the Center for Lit: “Education is not about what you read, or how many you read. It’s about how well you read. It’s about whether you are ready for the Great Books of the Western tradition to do their proper work on your soul. And if you’re ready, it only takes one.” I feel so strongly about this that I urge you to read my article and afterwards to listen to Andrews’ talk, “Asking the Right Questions,” linked in my article.
