    I should send this one to my Grandpa. He’s an avid reader (like me) and the person I go to when I need advice.

    Since each of us defines “wisdom” and “great books” differently and independent of one another, this stands up pretty well; those which we’d consider books of wisdom may be what another considers trash, but that makes them no less valuable to those who agree with or adhere to the wisdom within.

    Religious texts were my first thought.

    Love this one! Have to agree with David, tho – some of the best written offerings of wisdom are pretty short (and thus more easily understood and applied), and I’ve met some incredibly wise individuals with very few lines marking their faces.

    Some of the most inspiring books I’ve read are children’s books.

    The Giving Tree, and Le Petit Prince come to mind.

    I think by ‘lines’, she means good or quotable lines, not just number of…
