Yes, I'm a bookworm, but surprisingly, I didn't read many books this month. Here are the ones I've finished (I'm still in the middle of a couple, and I'll list them when I'm done.
It Was Only a Moment Ago by William Hablitzel, M.D. Dr. Hablitzel's books get better and better. The stories of his patients facing the worst are inspiring, and so is he. He makes a distinction between curing and healing, and clearly, he's a healer.
This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald. His first published book, a huge best seller in its time. It predates other coming of age books such as Catcher in the Rye, but it features a young man trying to figure out who he is and what life is all about.
To Bless the Space Between Us by John O'Donahue, recently reviewed on this blog. I love his poetry.
Books I'm Taking on Vacation
My Kindle is loaded up and ready to go. I doubt I'll read all these books, but I'm sure I'll finish some, and the rest I'll read when I get home:
The Lost Books of the Odyssey. A selection of my book group.
The Last Boy. A biography of Mickey Mantle.
Catching Fire. The second book in the YA Hunger Games trilogy.
Unbroken. World War II
Sight Unseen. An English mystery
