Longing for God is a splendid springboard into reading good things and more of them.
But let's be honest- why on earth bother? There's TV to watch, Facebook to fart about on and, if you are between the age of 12 and 22 (or sadly probably 32), you could spend 4 hours a day on a Playstation. Or indeed you could pass the hours texting, emailing, tweeting or coveting things on ebay or surfing your favourite websites (clothes, gadgets, interiors, cars and other hobbies). Why make time to read (listen to) books and most especially why when you are just about to die as Paul was?
Piper has some thoughts about this entitled Reading and Dying Well.
While we are on Piper, Krish has an interesting post about something he wrote on Norwegian justice and C S Lewis.
