One of my favorite pastimes has to be reading. I simply enjoy spending time increasing my knowledge of subjects I already know much of, and new subjects into which I can jump in and begin to swallow all the available information and facts to learn. Every season I have a reading list of books that I plan to finish within that period of time. My favorite time of the year for reading is the summer because I feel my schedule is not as restrictive and I am able to manage for of my time and direct it towards reading. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to share some of the books I have started and finished this summer, books I plan to read, and books I hope to purchase. Please feel free to comment and leave any recommendations. I especially enjoy theology, history, current events, social justice, some philosophy, biographies, among others.
