book ideas

Does anybody have any suggestions for books that I should read this summer? My goal is to read 20 books or less this summer so I get other things done as well.

I like how you have to limit yourself for your goal rather than to try to actually finish a certain amount. :)

If you came to visit me, you wouldn't have as much time to read and you could help me keep all the kids in line. and we could stamp.

I am re-reading Philip Gulley and I am not enjoying the book as much the second time around.

Try the quilter's apprentice by jennifer chiaverini. T read the book, skipped the quilting details, but enjoyed the rest of the story line.

Here is what I’ve read this year that’s worth reporting.

A book with some enduring ideas:

The Lost Virtue of Happiness: Discovering the Disciplines of the Good Life
by J. P. Moreland & Klaus Issler

Novels with interesting cultural themes (some of which help me better understand my husband):

Knots
by Nuruddin Farah

The Namesake: A Novel
by Jhumpa Lahiri

Desert Dawn
by Waris Dirie
