july reading

blue-books

It was another poor sleeping month which means it was a good reading month. 🙂

July:

  1. You Will Know Me – Megan Abbott
  2. A Gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles
  3. Goodbye, Vitamin: A Novel – Rachel Khong
  4. Since We Fell – Dennis Lehane
  5. A Woman’s Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything – Lydia Brownback
  6. Perfecting Ourselves to Death: The Pursuit of Excellence and the Perils of Perfectionism – Richard Winter
  7. Commentaries on Proverbs – Matthew Henry

My favorite this month (and will very likely make my top five for the year) was A Gentleman in Moscow. The other fiction books this month were just meh.

What are you reading & recommending these days?

  1. So glad to hear about A Gentleman in Moscow; it’s on hold at the library for digital audio. This month I’ve surprised myself by plowing through Michener’s Alaska. I’m not a real swift reader, and at 1124 pages, I figured if I got 500 pages into this word-dense book, I’d be doing well, take a break for something else, then revisit later to finish. Michener’s got me wrapped around his little finger though. By July 31, I was already on page 950, so finishing it soon is happening. For July, Alaska is my favorite pick for print, and for audio, David McCullough’s The American Spirit wins.

  2. If you’re still working through Proverbs, I would recommend Ray Ortlund’s “Proverbs: Wisdom That Works”. Anything by Ortlund, actually. I just started J.I. Packer’s “Rediscovering Holiness” and am finding it quite good.

so what do you think?
