Books from this summer
Here is this summer's reading list, most of it is fiction with two non-fiction books bracketing the light summer fare.
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
Great story about Greg Mortenson's quest to bring education to pakistan.
The Hidden River by Kate Grenville
Page turner that cover's a convicts quest to make it in Australia.
The Maytrees by Annie Dillard
Treatise on love, loss and redemption set in cape cod.
The Pleasure of My Company Steve Martin
Fun book on obsession, a little too happy ending for my taste.
The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Best read in short spurts.
The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson
The father of public health and his story. Cholera sucks, it turns out...
