Update

I'm nearly finished Paradise Lost and I'll post my thoughts on it soon, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to read the next Great Book. Today when I was on my local library's website looking for a copy of John Locke's Essay Concerning Humane Understanding, I noticed that they have gotten rid of a good portion of the Great Books series. Frankly, this upsets me. These books should always be available at the library. Granted some of them were pretty well used, but it was better than nothing! Who knows they may buy replacements and I may be over-reacting, but as it stands I've lost my reliable source for the Great Books. The simplest thing to do would be to just buy them, but I'm a broke college student. Maybe I'll look at some other libraries, look for online versions (even though I hate reading from a screen) etc. We'll have to see...
