Where to start reading?

With around 200 of Chesterton's works available on this site, ranging from short poems to complete books, several people have asked for suggestions about where to start reading.

Here are a few of my favourites:

In a Chestertonian spirit of democracy, here are the top ten downloads for the last half of 2005 (Note that The Flying Inn and The Complete Father Brown were not added to the site until 2006):

  1. St. Thomas Aquinas
  2. The Everlasting Man
  3. Dickens (Encyclopaedia Britannica article by G.K.C)
  4. Orthodoxy
  5. What's Wrong With the World
  6. Introduction to the Book of Job
  7. Heretics
  8. The Ballad of the White Horse
  9. Selected Quotes
  10. Christmas Poem
