Books Finished in May 2012

Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton (First time read; I see why people encourage reading it, but I also think it's usefulness will lag in the years to come. He mentions lots of people not alive today by name. These ideas are repeated every generation or so, but these names of the late 19th century have been forgotten.)
Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkien (I try to reread the Lord of the Rings every few years or so; always excellent. Glad to be onto Two Towers; this could be my favorite book of the three.)
Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (another book worth rereading every few years)

Personally my favorite of the series is the last one (Return of the King) because I like the Appendix.
