Need Good Book Ideas

Ok, I'm stumped on great reading ideas. I've got multiple books started and none of them are really grabbing me right now. If you've seen what I read and have a suggestion to recommend, please send me a note.

I've been gone too long and will post again shortly.  Hope you are doing great!

  1. Have you read UNBROKEN? Didn't see it on the list. Incredible biography of a WWII vet. He is still living! My favorite book this year. Also, I just finished Water for Elephants. Had some rough stuff in it but generally I enjoyed it.

  2. I didn't get into Water for Elephants or Heaven is for Real. Loved The Help but Andy says i can't recommend that to a man, so I won't.

    I am reading The New Christian by Gabe Lyons (wrote UnChristian, I had a love/hate relationship with that book). I was able to participate in a Skype Session with Gabe about this book and I found him a fascinating hipster ;)

    Anyway, I am committed to reading it because I think it gives me some insight into my students. Check it out sometime.

  3. Thanks for the recommendations Robin and Summer. I also heard from others via email and one from twitter. The first one I'm reading is Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea which is a hard to believe true life story of life in North Korea.

    More later about it.

  4. Summer, did you mean The Next Christians?
