Summer is finally here and with Summer comes summer reading lists! Many of the blogs I follow have been sharing their Summer reading list, so I decided that I would join in for the first time!
All of the books on my reading list are books that I have been wanting to read for awhile and that have been collecting dust on my book shelf.
NOTE: The following are in no particular order.
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
Reason For Reading: I found this book at Goodwill for $2 and it looked interesting. It seems like a nice easy read that I would enjoy.
Under Western Skies: Nature and History in the American West by Donald Worster
Reason For Reading: I also found this book at Goodwill for about $3. I love learning about history, so this book is right up my alley.
Acting: The First Six Lessons: Documents from the American Laboratory Theatre by Richard Boleslavsky
Reason For Reading: I love acting, and I am always trying to improve my skill, so when a fellow actor at my theater offered this book to me, I was more than excited!
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
Reason for Reading: In June 2011, my family was on vacation and stopped into Barnes and Noble, when I bought this book. I have been working on it since that day and I am not even half way through yet. I am determined to finish it!
What is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert
Reason for Reading: When it comes to spreading the Gospel, I am not the might warrior that I would like to be and that God calls me to be. I’m going to read this book in hopes of getting a clearer understanding of what is the Gospel and how to share the good news with others.
Had A Good Time by Robert Olen Butler
Reason for Reading: My Sissy sent this book to me in a care package saying that she really enjoyed it and thought that I might enjoy it as well. I don’t know what it’s about, but I’m excited to read it!
The Soul Winner by C. H. Spurgeon.
Reason For Reading: I am going to read this book for two reasons. One, my friend Benjamin so graciously sent me a copy a few months ago and I just haven’t had time to read it. Secondly, I am hoping that this book will help me become more like the godly warrior that God wants me to be.
And that’s my list! What are you reading this summer?
