So what are fellow readers reading? For me I found a bit of a treasure trove of old books as I have been killing time at my Mother-in-law’s house (especially after my laptop cord broke leaving me internetless for the duration, except when I can steal my wife’s.
My most recent find was Joseph Fielding Smith’s Man, his origin and his destiny, which is fun to have for the history of the book if nothing else. Right now however I am actually reading two books, An Ancient American Setting for the Book of Mormonby John L. Sorenson. Other than losing me in the middle of his discussions of walking distance and interminable math I found it an intriguing book. It certainly places the Limited Geography Theory in context.
The other book is different but yet religious in some aspects. When I was wandering around the local book store I found several books under the heading of A Brief History of… Two that I found interesting were A Brief History of the Crimean War (I know nothing about it so I thought I would study up a bit). the other was called A Brief History of the Crusades.
While the books are in normal paperback size and are macrohistory they still provide some interesting perspectives of events that I am less familiar with. So in that regard they are nice bite sized books. Worth reading for sure.
Anyway what else are you all reading and what recommendations would you make?
Fiction book wise I read John Grisham’s Playing for Pizza and recommend it as an excellent addition. For someone not enthralled with his legal books it is a nice change of pace. If you liked Skipping Christmas this is about in the same area.
