On My Bookshelf — April 22nd, 2016

Things are a bit more piled up than usual on my bookshelf.  Here are some of the books waiting to be read:


Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon — a fascinating reconstruction of history that I can’t wait to tell you about.


Once a Crooked Man by David McCallum — a first novel by the intrepid spy from U.N.C.L.E, well told, and full of interesting twists and characters.


Buying Samir by Kimberly Rae — a story of street kids in India surviving against all odds with the help of Christians both Western and native.


The Fourth Reich by Helen Goltz — the 3rd book in the Mitchell Parker Crime Thriller Series, this novel tells a compelling and plausible, if somewhat scary, modern day tale of power, corruption, and racial domination.


An Unfamiliar Murder by Jane Isaac — expect to see a review of this DCI Helen Lavery book, the first in the series and the first Jane Isaac book I’ve read, on one of my Mystery Monday features.


Lawrence In Arabia by Scott Anderson is a rather large, daunting, hard cover book of history that has been sitting on my shelf for over a year daring me to begin it.  I’d really like to, but . . .


A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks — the first book I’ve read by Sparks although I enjoyed movies made from two of his other books — The Notebook and Message in a Bottle.


Shylock is My Name by Howard Jacobson — this book has received rave reviews and I couldn’t wait to get into it, being a fan of Shakespeare and all, but I’m finding it really hard to get into.  Perhaps a specific frame of mind is required before starting.  I’ll keep trying.

What’s waiting on your bookshelf?  Share a link to your list!


About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
