What Are You Reading?
At Kiddush this week, someone asked me what I read over the summer. And then at Shabbat lunch someone else asked as well. And then Sunday morning another person asked. I detected a trend. It just so happens that I keep a list (by quarter) so I thought I’d share with you and compare notes.
- The Art Of Fielding Chad Harbach
- Double Take Catherine Coulter
- Riding Lessons Sara Gruen
- An Available Man Hilma Wolitzer
- Inside the Large Congregation Susan Beaumont
- Study As Worship Benedict Thomas Viviano
- The Hard Way Lee Child
- Ashes to Ashes Tami Hoag
- Lone Wolf Jodi Picoult
- The Beginner’s Goodbye Anne Tyler
- In the Garden of Beasts Erik Larson
- Dinner: A Love Story Jenny Rosenstrach
- The World Without You Joshua Henkin
- The Power of Habit Charles Duhigg
- Come Home Lisa Scottoline
- Lots of Candles Plenty of Cake Anna Quindlen
- Nothing to Lose Lee Child
- Bad Luck and Trouble Lee Child
- The Secret Servant Daniel Silva
- The Confessor Daniel Silva
- How Will You measure Your Life? Clayton Christensen
- There But For The Ali Smith
Here’s what this list says to me:
- I have read more nonfiction this quarter than I have in a long time. Is this because I’m getting older?
- Give me a Jack Reacher or Gabriel Allon suspense thriller and I’m a happy gal.
- “Chick lit” is not interesting to me right now, even for the beach. Not a single one of these books had a pink cover.
What did you read this summer that you recommend?
