January Books

January 2011 – Books Read

I’m thinking that at the end of each month I’ll post some of the books I’ve read that month. My hope is that you’ll tell me some of the books you’re reading and why you liked them.

In January I read 15 books, but these are the ones I really recommend.

From the Hood to the Hill—A story of overcoming, by Barry C. Black. I’ve already written about this chaplain to the U.S. Senate.

Let’s Take the Long Way Home—A Memoir of Friendship, by Gail Caldwell. This book makes you feel lucky if you have a friendship like Gail Caldwell had and reminds you to cherish the time. I loved the quote: “I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder creatures.”

Still Alice, by Lisa Genova is a well written story about a Harvard . linguistics professor who develops Alzheimer’s disease.

A Complicated Man—The Life of Bill Clinton As Told By Those Who Know Him, by Michael Takiff. This was a fascinating read but also an interesting way to write with public quotes and then with interviews.
