A Good Rule

C.S. Lewis, "On the Reading of Old Books," in Undeceptions (London, 1971), p. 162:
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.
