The Well-Educated Mind Update: 91% (143/158)

I finally finished Mein Kampf. I am taking a big bow and won't even justify him by reviewing it. He was evil and arrogant!


I am down to a single digit percent-wise. 9% of the books left. I am finishing the autobiographies and will go back to the remaining history books. Here is my tentative schedule over the next year:


AUTOBIOGRAPHY (all in the Modern Period)

1948 Seven Story Mountain Merton (Sept)
1965 The Autobiography of + Malcolm X (Oct)

1973 Gulag Archipelago Solzhenitsyn (Nov)



HISTORY
EARLY MODERN (1600 – 1850)
1776 Decline & Fall Roman Empire Gibbon (Dec)
1835 Democracy in America Tocqueville (Jan)
MODERN (1850 – present)
1860 Civilization of Renaissance Burckhardt (Feb)
1904 Protestant Work Ethic/Spirit of Capitalism Weber (Mar)
1937 The Road to Wigan Pier Orwell (Apr)
1938 The New England Mind Miller (April/May)
1955 The Great Crash Galbraith (May)
1974 Roll, Jordan, Roll Genovese (June)
1978 Distant Mirror Tuchman (Aug)
1987 All the President's Men Woodward & Bernstein (July)
1990 A Midwife's Tale Ballard (July)
1992 The End of History & the Last Man Fukuyama (Sept)

Lord willing, I will be done with this Odyssey eight years after I started.
