Reading Great Books Well

John Piper, an avid reader, says reading a lot of books isn’t important. He says,

Reading great books and reading them well is what is important. Meditative reading, reading which stops and ponders, reading which sees deep into reality – that is the kind of reading which profits. That kind of reading should never end for you. Growth and stimulation and transformation will never end for you. You will be in the company of the greatest minds and hearts for the rest of your life, and you will become their peers if you read for understanding and for life.

Here’s a list of the books that have most influenced Piper’s life.
