I am always reading six or seven books at a time, moving back and forth between them, some for work and some for pleasure. If I get really engrossed, I may keep reading one while neglecting the others.
From time to time, I will elucidate my loyal readers as to what books I am currently devouring.
Here is my current reading list, with a handy link to Amazon for those who want to purchase or read further reviews of each recommended book.
This is an informative, and, at the same time, hilarious book on the state of our country and her politics.
I haven’t been able to put this one down, lately. An peek inside the marriage and working relationship of Bill and Hillary during Bill Clinton’s administration as President. If this doesn’t scare you away from Hillary, nothing will.
Playing For Pizza: A Novel by John Grisham
If you like football and want to learn cultural tidbits about Italy, you will enjoy this novel.
The Contrarian’s Guide to Leadership (J-B Warren Bennis Series) by Steven B. Sample
My cousins Carl and Steve turned me onto this book on leadership. I have found Sample’s leadership style extremely interesting, especially the chapter on “Knowing Which Hill You’re Willing to Die On”.
Intervention!: The United States and the Mexican Revolution, 1913-1917 by John Eisenhower
Really interesting follow-up to his book on the U.S./Mexico War that traces our relationship with Mexico during her revolution, including lots of cool Pancho Villa information.
A WHACK ON THE SIDE OF THE HEAD: How You Can Be More Creative by Roger von Oech
van Oech is really good at challenging the reader to think in unorthodox ways. This book is amusing, challenging and fascinating.
Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Response to Evangelical Feminism by John Piper & Wayne Grudem
I’m not reading this straight through, but gleaning from different chapters…extremely good research that examines what the Bible says about the roles of men and women in the church and in the home.
