Summer, Where didst Thou Go?

Here it is mid-September and I haven't been very good about updating you on what I've been reading. I finally got another bookshelf so only a few books are left on my floor.

What "light" reading did you get done this summer?

I read Helen Keller's autobiography The Story of My Life in August. Her life is truly an amazing one and it inspired me to greater perseverance when faced with obstacles in life. She worked her whole life perfecting her writing, speech, and reaching out to those around her. How can I do any less?

Another inspiring novel is My Hands Came Away Red by Lisa McKay. Her first book is very well written, in fact I had to remind myself that it wasn't a true story! The research and background for it is based on stories from humanitarian relief workers and missionaries. I look forward to her future books.

Do you have any recommendations?
