I envy your reading abilities. How are you able to follow and remember from these books at the same time? Got any tips for an amateur reader who is trying to build up this discipline?I am one of those people who have about 7 books on the go at once.
Right now I am trying to limit it to:
The Art of Prayer by Igumen Chariton Valamo
On the Prayer of Jesus by Ignatius Brianchaninov
I also read a small part from My Life In Christ by St. John of Kronstadt each day

I read that a while ago and honestly I love Evolas work but that book tends to drag, the best parts are his criticisms of America and the Soviet Union at the end. If you wanted to check out some more of evolas work id recommend going to counter currents its got a pretty good chunk of his articles over there! https://counter-currents.com/2021/05/remembering-julius-evola-9/Currently working on Revolt Against the Modern World by Evola. Between the translation and the author’s wordiness, it’s difficult. Some interesting ideas though.
1. Spiritual Counsels I: With Pain and Love for Contemporary Man by Saint Paisios of Mount Athos
2. The Religion of the Apostles: Orthodox Christianity in the First Century by Fr. Stephen De Young
3. The Art of Salvation by Elder Ephraim of Arizona
