    >There are too many mediocre books which exist just to entertain your mind. Therefore, read only those books which are accepted without doubt as good.

    I don't really read anymore. Not like I used to. I wouldn't call rereading, slowly making my way through Moby Dick by reading a chapter every other day in order to pretend I'm still a literary type "reading".

      He said IQfy, not /misc/. Rope. And stop telling people you read Rand, Mises, and Rothbard, if you're going to list that other trash. You're tarnishing their fricking reputations, gutter trash!

          I didn't expect you to understand. You don't need to. Just obey.

    i read almost exclusively books i have seen mentioned on IQfy many times and am seldom disapointed. in addition to covering many of the classics you guys have turned me on to a lot of books i would probably never have heard of otherwise, such as The Peregrine, Pimp, and The Tartar Steppe.

    All kinds, but we who belong here read the Western Canon and, though to a lesser extent I should hope, Eastern equivalents.

    Start with the Holy Bible, KJV/ESV/NASB1977 or some other RESPECTABLE translation, then move on to the Greeks (Hesiod, Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripedes, etc.,.) and Romans (Ovid, Seneca, Tacitus, Cicero, etc.,.). Afterwards, make sure you hit the big ten—Dante (yes, even in translation; he was too influential not to), Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, then do some research and work through other prominent men.

    And don't forget non-fiction—philosophy (Plato, Aristotle, etc.,.), theology, history, history of art, math, and science. And there's something which perhaps others neglect, but you shouldn't—mythology. Read mythology and folktales from various places, but don't prioritize them necessarily. On the bright side, myth and folk legend tend to be light reading, especially the latter.

      >big ten
      I shortened it to five and forgot to change what I had originally said.

      Also, I meant to say that what I'm reading now is a textbook on Ancient Greek (I am a beginner) and Trollope's The Warden, of the Barsetshire Chronicles.

    A man need not read more than these and in fact shouldn’t, as any more will pollute the mind. A man should read nothing but these books at least 5 times and be thoroughly informed on them:

    Bible
    Homer
    Daodejing
    Zhuangzi
    Hindu scripture books
    Aeschylus
    Sophocles
    Herodotus
    Thucydides
    Plato
    Virgil
    Ovid
    Seneca
    Plutarch
    Dante
    Chaucer
    Rabelais
    Montaigne
    Shakespeare
    Cervantes
    Burton
    Goethe
    Emerson
    Whitman
    Nietzsche
    Freud
    Jung
    Thomas Pynchon

      It's a good list, but dreadfully, horribly too incomplete to pass as a complete literary diet. You could do with a bit of humility, you know.
