My reading interests run the gamut from suspense to historical fiction to nonfiction. I almost always have more than one book that I’m reading all the time. My current books are Bones to Ashes, by Kathy Reichs, and Half the Sky, by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
Half the Sky is not easy to read. I find myself re-reading some sentences or paragraphs because the information is so difficult to take in.
I highly recommend Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide to everyone. Be prepared to be shocked and challenged.
Another book I recommend is The Dry Grass of August, by A.J. Mayhew. She is speaking at Rocky River Presbyterian Church tomorrow night to the Rocky River Readers Book Club at 7 p.m. The public is invited. If you live near Harrisburg/Concord, please come out. It’s not often that we have the opportunity to hear a published author speak and address our questions.
