Classics For The Reader   


Here are many great classic writings. Some are religious and some are not but this grouping covers virtually every interest, from some of the old writings for children to those of the ancients as Homer, Aristotle and Cicero to the more recent of Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Samuel Clemens, and on and on.

Many of us who are older had a lot of these writings included in our reading requirements in school. I am not sure just how many are now required, but young and old alike can receive much benefit from reading these. I do, however recommend that one first study the Holy Bible and related materials before these.
