A look at major reading for the month. I’m trying something new, adding little summaries.

  1. The Non-Profit Narrative: How Telling Stories Can Change the World by Dan Portnoy
  2. Give Me a Log with You At One End by Jack Shakely
  3. St. Francis of Assisi by G.K. Chesterton
  4. The Legends of the Nittany Valley by Henry W. Shoemaker
  5. Penn’s Grandest Cavern by Henry W. Shoemaker

One Line Summaries:

  1. A narrative story that witnesses matters; disjointed facts suggest disjoined operation.
  2. People over programming and candor and humor over stuffiness.
  3. A reactionary life can only be understood by learning what one reacted against (or for).
  4. Knowing the history of a place lets you enter into history; it’s alive, and will keep you alive.
  5. “No spot of ground a hundred feet square in the Pennsylvania mountains has not its legend.”
