Reading Roundup: May 2011

I didn’t read as many books this month- spending nearly a week in Austin when my Dad passed away and then this past weekend I slipped on the stairs.  I happened to be carrying my Kindle at the time and learned that this reading device does not survive when you use it to break your fall.  I escaped un-injured, the Kindle was not so lucky.  I got another one yesterday.

The couldn’t put down:

  • The Happiness of Pursuit by Davis Phinney- The memoirs of an American cycling great from the 1980’s.  Not only does he write about his life as one of the first American cyclists in Europe, but he details his struggles with early onset Parkinson’s Disease.  Inspirational and eye-opening to read about what a person with Parkinson’s goes through.

Still good:

  • Three Cups of Deceit:  How Greg Mortenson, Humanitarian Hero, Lost His Way by Jon Krakauer
  • Drive:  The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink
  • The Last Assassin by Barry Eisler
  • Requiem For An Assassin by Barry Eisler
  • The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo
  • Will Jesus Buy Me A Double-Wide?: (‘Cause I Need More Room For My Plasma TV) by Karen Spears Zacharias
  • CS Lewis:  A Biography by George Sayer
  • Veneer:  Living Deeply in a Surface Society by Timothy Willard and Jason Locy
  • The Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley
