Summer reading list anyone?

Tired of talking about religion? Need a smoke break? Want some potluck? Then head on over to the Fellowship Hall and talk about anything you want.

So what's on your reading list for this summer?

My daughter has a part-time job at a local bookstore so she gets to read books for free and shares some with me. So far I've read:

"All the Light we cannot see" by Anthony Doerr
"The Little Paris Bookshop" by Nina George
"The Martian" by Andy Weir

All are good stories but Anthony Doerr's is one I strongly recommend. Regarding "The Martian", I never saw the movie and I've been told that the book is better but I know people who thoroughly enjoyed the film.

I'm re-reading Shakespeare and Sherlock Holmes. It's just amazing how many quotes we get from Shakespeare, and Holmes is just easy-on-the-brain fun, which is much needed during this transition time! It takes forever to unpack and get set up!

Christianity is the red pill - go for it! Seek the truth, wherever it leads you.
