When summer rolls around something deep inside still fills like a student who feels compelled to make a summer reading list. Is it just me or do you still have those same feelings of "school's out?" I just finished reading Strength in What Remains, by Tracy Kidder and Hidden in Paris, by Corine Gantz, two very different books but both very good.
Strength in What Remains is the true story of Deogratias ‘Deo’ Niyizonkiza, a refugee from war-torn Burundi who arrives in New York with few belongings and unable to speak English. It's an amazing story of someone who went from being homeless to attending an Ivy League school. Click here to learn more.
Marie Arden Pink Living recently posted about Hidden in Paris and I have to admit the beautiful cover really caught my eye.
Beyond the cover is a wonderful story of friendships, love and healing. Be sure to put this one on your list.
My bookclub is reading The Poisonwood Bible this month so I've just downloaded it on my iPad. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I've actually downloaded a book on my iPad but it so much more portable for daily commutes. I've also discovered that reading in bed with an iPad is easier too.
As soon as I've finished my "required" reading I will be reading Summer Rental - I can't wait!
What's on your list?
