Summer Reading - Hold in your hand books

I'm limiting my review list a lot this summer so I can finally read some of the books I've had on my "To Be Read Soon" list.  These three are the non-Kindle books I'm going to read first this Summer.

It still takes me longer than it once did to read since I have to stop when my right eye becomes strained.  But it is still do-able.  I find reading on the Kindle a little easier.  Next week I will share my top Kindle reads I have planned for the summer.

Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, & Fresh Food Makers by Margaret Feinberg.

I have read and enjoyed other books by Margaret Feinberg. This is called a "culinary and spiritual adventure".

All of her books make for delightful summer reading and I'm looking forward to reading this one!  It is written in such a way that one can read just one chapter at a time here and there or read the book through in one short vacation.

The Persian Gamble by Joel Rosenberg

This is the second book of a new series whose main character is Marcus Ryker.  It takes up where the first book left off with Marcus and a Russian (unintended) double agent escaping from Russian Special Forces.

The first book in the series, The Kremlin Conspiracy, was about Russia and the U.S.  This book deals with the possibility of North Korea selling nukes to Iran.

Joel Rosenberg is one of my very favorite novelists.  No one writes better geo-political stories and they are from a Christian perspective.  I bought this book for my husband's birthday in April and since he hasn't read it, yet... it goes on my Summer reading list.

Top Gun by Dan Pedersen

I saw an interview with Dan Pedersen on TV and ordered this book that day. The price is less than half what it was originally.

In the interview, Pedersen (the founder of the Top Gun program) talked about how the U. S. was losing one airplane for ever two it shot down in Vietnam.  It became obvious that the young fighter pilots did not have the dog fighting skills of WWII pilots.

Pedersen was given the task of training their best pilots in the art of dog fighting (aerial combat) and this is the story of how Top Gun begun and its' history.  What makes this story even more interesting to me is that he is a man of faith as well as fighter pilot skills.  I'm looking forward to this book, too.

Next week I will share the Kindle books on my Summer reading list.

That's an eclectic list of books for sure. I have been watching a lot of the D-Day commemorations and it has been very moving...incredible even. So all these books have the faith that is interesting. God's people do many different things and have many different skills.

Very interesting reading. I love Vee's comment that God's people do many different things. So true!

Thanks for sharing these with us!

Interesting reads, but probably not items I would read. I enjoy holding a book in my hands so I never e-read. I am currently reading a book by Beverly Lewis as I do enjoy a good book set in the Amish community.
