I've returned too many library books to recall what I've read. I'm almost embarrassed to try to briefly capture my list here . . . though I'll do so as the goal of this has always been for my own review in the future, more so than for any other person to read.
A fair amount of travel and time with my lovely bride this summer.
I really enjoyed reading this after classes got out with a few students I have mentored, who have worked with me: Sacred Treasure The Cairo Genizah The Amazing Discoveries of Forgotten Jewish History in an Egyptian Synagogue Attic by Mark Glickman. Much was review to me, though I still learned a lot of new data.This was also a good read: by Adina Hoffman and Peter Cole
The Wright Brothers, by David McCollough was so good I decided to read several others by McCollough. Also read: The Path Between the Seas about the Panama Canal and Mornings On Horseback about Teddy Roosevelt and The Great Bridge about the Brooklyn Bridge. I'll hope to get to more of his books though the best thus far was the Wright Brothers.
Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis proved intriguing and insightful.
Quiet Mind: One Minute Mindfulness by David Kundtz
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi and Abraham Verhese is moving. I've recommended it to others.
Taming the Drunken Monkey: The Path to Mindfulness, Meditation, and Increased Concentration by William L Mikulas
The Ideal Team Player: How to Recognize and Cultivate The Three Essential Virtues by Patrick Lencioni. I don't think I have read anything by Lencioni I don't like.
Finding the Quiet by Paul Wilson
