Here’s a beauty for you.
This book (A Diary of Readings by John Baillie) was first published in 1955. It’s one of those daily readers, which I’ve never been very successful with.
However, this one limits each day’s reading to one page or less, and the sources are mostly fantastic writers whose names I’m not familiar with. Every few pages, I see a name I know, but most of it is like a new field for treasure-hunting.
I have yet to find a page that hasn’t been special in some way, and I wouldn’t say that of many books I’ve met.
This is the kind of book you can definitely find second hand. I bought mine for $1.50! Money well spent…
