My heart was just made exceedingly joyful. I was waiting for my coffee to be made at The Well (the coffee shop at Regent) and I started looking around me. Imagine my unbridled joy as I found that the second most important bookcase (after the textbook case) was called "The Inklings". It is none other than the writings of all of those from those most famous of all literary clubs.
The Inklings, if you're not sure, was a group of people who came together to discuss literature, and specifically Christian literature. They met in a pub called "The Eagle and Child" (though they called it "the bird and the baby"), and the group included C.S. Lewis (my personal hero), J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams and several others.
To have a bookcase called "The Inklings" is pretty much my dream. They did add a couple of authors in who were technically not Inklings (like George MacDonald, who was C.S. Lewis' personal hero), but were closely linked in other ways.
I like it here. I think I am going to like it here. I'm going to go read now... and sip on my mocha. Actually, the book I am reading is by one of the Inklings... Charles Williams. "Descent of the Dove". If you can, give it a read, it is fabulous.
