Karen Swallow Prior – Fiction Reading List on the Virtues

September 6, 2018 — Leave a comment

 

Last night, I finished reading Karen Swallow Prior’s excellent new book:

 

On Reading Well:
Finding the Good Life
through Great Books
Karen Swallow Prior

 
Hardback: Brazos Press, 2018.
Buy Now: [ Amazon ] [ Kindle

 
 

The book is excellent. I wholeheartedly agree with Prior’s description of reading as a practice that forms virtue in us.

My only regret was that I hadn’t read (or recently read) a number of the novels that she explores in the book

 

Read the
Book’s Introduction:

On the pages that follow, we offer Karen Swallow Prior’s reading list of 12 novels that have the potential to form virtue in us.

They are organized in the manner presented in the book. We recommend reading these novels (or those you haven’t already read) in conjunction with ON READING WELL

(Half these novels are available as FREE ebooks!)
