Inspiration: It is a good rule, after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between. If that is too much for you, you should at least read one old one to every three new ones. C.S. Lewis
# of books: readers decide

I've read 33 Christian books. Twenty-five non-fiction books. Eight fiction ones. All of the fiction has been new with the exception of an updated Pilgrim's Progress published in 1998. Five of the nonfiction have been old. But some books are tricky. Like the "new" Tozer book with the 2018 publication date--but he died in 1963. It's previously unpublished so it is technically new. But it's "old" too.
