Charles Eliot's Harvard Classics, 5-foot shelf of books and a shelf of fiction. 15-minutes per day for a year to a liberal education. In Fifteen Minutes a Day, The Reading Guide, Dr. Elliot is quoted as saying "...I had more than once stated in public that in my opinion a five-foot -- at first a three-foot -- shelf would hold books enough to afford a good substitute for a liberal education to anyone who would read them with devotion, even if he could spare but fifteen minutes a day for reading."
