Bookshelf

Looking for recommendations for a great read?  Check out what’s on my bookshelf (or, should I say, my nightstand)!

I’m the type of person who would be reading six books at once, if it were possible to enjoy and absorb all of them.  I like to keep my reading list rounded out: classics, current events & politics, new fiction, etc.  I believe that it’s important to be well-rounded in your knowledge, and what better way to achieve that then to read?  To keep track of my favorite reads, and future reads (and to keep me accountable), I’ll add those books here.

CLASSICS:

In September, I joined an online book club, hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Edie of Life{in}Grace.  This book club focuses on the classics, and when I say classics, I mean the ancient Greeks and Romans.  If you’re interested in this type of reading, join the club!  Here’s what we’ve read/are reading so far –
September: The Odyssey | October: Antigone | November: Plato’s Republic.


I have to admit, I’m consistently behind in this book club, but I keep on chugging because Edie is an inspiration to me.  Join the online forum for book discussions

POLITICS & CURRENT EVENTS:
I’m currently reading Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America by Mark Levin.
Mark Levin is a Conservative radio talk show host, who I would LOVE to meet.  He approaches the American political scene with a no-nonsense attitude, and his background in law cuts to the root of every issue.  The man is an inspiration, and I encourage you to check out his radio show, and his books!  I consider Mark to be one of the best teachers I’ve ever had!

 

 

RELIGION:
I was really impressed with Dinesh D’Souza‘s documentary 2016: Obama’s America.

So, I looked into his background and found that he’s written on Christianity as well.Right now, I’m reading his book What’s So Great About Christianity?  It’s a rationally constructed argument for Christianity, particularlygeared toward the opposition of the framework of the atheist argument.
