2010 summer reading

Well, we’re almost a third of the way through summer, but it’s still a good time to talk about summer reading. Here’s a few things on my list.

  • The Source, by James Michener – Started this epic archealogical tale just before the Israel trip. It’s really long, but it’s good too. Having seen several sites, including ones the novel is based on, I hope to finish it out this summer.
  • Jesus, the Apostles, and the Early Church, by Pope Benedict XVI – I’m reading Benedict’s reflections collected here as part of my devotional time.
  • Run With the Horses, by Eugene Peterson – Plan to follow the pope with Peterson’s study of Jeremiah.
  • Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey – Read this years ago and am now rereading.
  • Switch, by the Heath brothers – Made to Stick was great. I’ve been looking forward to their next.
  • Orthodoxy, by GK Chesterton – Another “in the middle of it, want to finish it” book.
  • The Chosen, by Chaim Potok – A favorite novel, haven’t read it in a few years, but like to pull back off the shelf from time to time.
  • Something mindless from John Grisham – well, because it’s summer. Probably do this one on vacation!

I’ve overly ambitious as a rule, so who knows if I’ll read all of these, but that’s what’s on my radar and I’ll enjoy myself either way.

So, what’s on your summer reading list?
