A while back I had an idea that began nagging at me: A reading list of all the very best books on a wide variety of subjects. A structured list that you could read through, discussing them with others, to get a comprehensive overview of everything there is to know.
It’s an idea that’s stuck in my head ever since but the large number of tricky questions involved (What are the books? How are they chosen? How many books? What subjects? etc) prevented me making anything.
So it seemed wise to tell people about it, which I’ve begun doing at a new site, Septivium. It might become something wonderful or it might go nowhere. Either way I hope some people will be interested enough to discuss it.
If you find it an interesting idea — the chance to read and learn about everything in the world — then do visit, follow along, and tell me what you think.
And if you know someone else who might be interested — whether they already know everything, or they know nothing, or they know more than anyone about one specific subject — please do send them along. Thanks.
(For those reading this through my super aggregated feed my Septivium post(s) should already be with you.)
