Words on Wednesday - Truth vs. Falsehood

I'm not actually reading Milton right now, but I am reading a book that quoted this. I love this passage. Why are we so afraid of confronting wide and varied ideas? Could it be because we're afraid truth is not actually powerful?

What I'm Reading Now:
Still a few familiar ones hanging out there with these new additions:

The last one is where I read the passage from Milton. Karen Swallow Prior's book Booked, is one of my favorite things I've read recently. I've been reading parts of it out loud to my husband and I identify with so many things she shares. Highly recommended (although I haven't finished it yet).

Had to update this post to let you know: I do NOT recommend the 2nd book here. I picked it up because it was our library's book of the month but it is full of objectionable stuff with not much to redeem it. If you read it, please don't think it was because I recommended it!

Current Kindle Reads:
I ordered this one when it was free a day or two ago:

But I haven't really been doing much reading on my Kindle.

Current Read Aloud:
We've missed reading aloud (other than books for school or picture books) most evenings lately.

Current Book to Review:

If you'd like to see more about which books I'm reading and what I've finished in the past, I'd love to be your friend on Goodreads.

What are you reading now?

I think I'll have to read the Milton quote a bunch more times to understand it.

Booked is on my radar, can't wait to see your review at the end! Thanks for linking in!

love the phrase "Truth be in the field." so absolutely evocative.
