On a recent trip to Barnes and Noble to scout new books I saw a table marked “Summer Reading.” Yep. . . it’s that time of year. My love for reading at the beach has combined with my declining eyesight to warrant the purchase of a pair of reading sunglasses. I’m so glad they have these things. . . and I found a pair for four bucks!
With vacation and some study leave just a few days away I put the final touches on my summer reading list late last night. The books have been chosen, stacked, and are ready to be packed. All that’s left is putting them in order and then getting them read. Here’s a photo of what I’ve put together for summer.
You’ll see that there’s a combination of stuff. . . everything from a book on Roger Maris to Tim Keller to the latest from Steve Turner (Popcultured. . . which just arrived yesterday from InterVarsity Press!). This is going to be fun!
In an effort to help you make your summer reading decisions, we’re offering a free webinar on summer reading suggestions, this Thursday at 1pm Eastern Time. CPYU’s Derek Melleby will be interviewing Byron Borger, our good friend and proprietor of Hearts and Minds Bookstore. . . and a guy whose knowledge and enthusiasm for books is unsurpassed! It will be worth it to sign up and tune in just to get to know Byron!
Derek and Byron will be walking you through several great categories of books with suggestions from each. Remember. . . readers are leaders and leaders are readers. I trust you’ll join us! You can register here. In the meantime, here’s a great preview of our friend Byron. . . .
Thank you for this. It is ALWAYS fun to hear Byron speak so passionately about books & reading. His store has been a help & a refuge. To me, before there was Wikipedia, There was Byron & Hearts & Minds. He’s been such a great friend. Thanks again for this.
