Reading Roundup August 2010

Here’s a selection of the books that I found interesting this month:

  • ReWork by Jason Fried and David Hansson-  An interesting and unique take on the culture of work
  • Nineteen Seventy-Seven by David Peace- Book Two of the Red Riding Quarter.  Really good.  Not for the squeamish.  British crime noir.
  • The Orthodox Heretic by Peter Rollins-  Mind-bending.  Rollins presents a number of parables to challenge a person’s thinking on what it means to follow Christ.  Very good.
  • Nineteen Eighty by David Peace-  Book Three of the Red Riding Quartet.  Good.  British crime noir.
  • Bloody Confused!:  A Clueless American Sportswriter Seeks Solace in English Soccer by Chuck Culpepper-  A funny book of a sportswriter who moved to England for a year and became a fan of soccer.  Funny and good.
  • Nineteen Eighty Three by David Peace- Book Four of the Red Riding Quarter.  Good, but not for the squeamish.  British crime noir.
  • The Fidelity of Betrayal by Peter Rollins-  Another thought provoking book on Christ and what it means to follow him.  Deals a lot more with philosophy, post-modernism, and can get a bit intellectual at times.
  • Drops Like Stars by Rob Bell- easy, quick read.  Inspiring and thought-provoking.
  • Flannery:  A Life of Flannery O’Connor by Brad Gooch-  For fans of Flannery, this book gives a very good overview of her short life, how her works were composed, and the difficult relationship with her mother.
  • The New Breed:  Understanding and Equipping the 21st Century Volunteer by Jonathan McKee
  • Wisdom Chaser:  Finding My Father at 14,000 Feet by Nathan Foster-  Very good book.
  • The Art of a Beautiful Game:  The Thinking Fan’s Tour of the NBA by Chris Ballard
  • Priceless:  How I Went Undercover To Rescue The World’s Stolen Art Treasures by Robert Wittman-  Interesting.  Page-turner.  Former FBI agent tells of his travels around the world to track down stolen art treasure.
  • The Mentor Leader by Tony Dungy-  Dungy tells of what he has learned as a man and a coach to help lead those around him.
