More Summer Reading!

Couldn’t get enough of our summer reading list? Luckily for you it has more than doubled with the addition of Rosemary Norris’s summer good reads:

Jacqueline Kennedy - Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy. Interviews with Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., 1964. 
 An interesting read from Jackie's perspective.

Double-Edged Sword by Steve Anderson. 
A short story about a spy during WWII.

Modern Buddhism:  The Path of Compassion and Wisdom - Volume 1 by Geshe Kelsand Gyatso. 
A beginning book to learn more about Buddhism.

Calico Joe by John Grisham. 
This book was different than most of his books as it was not about lawyers.  It was a good story about a baseball player and since this is baseball season, it was a good easy read.

Istanbul Passage by Joseph Kanon. 
This is a novel about a spy during WWII in Turkey, which was a neutral country.  If you like espionage stories, this is a good one to read.

Uncle Al Capone - The Untold Story from Inside His Family by Deirdre Marie Capone. 
 His niece presents a different image of "Al."

11/22/63 by Stephen King. 
 An interesting story about what would have happened if a person could have changed the events that led up to JFK being shot, and he wasn't killed that day.  An interesting journey traveling back through time to change history.  A different type of story to read and contemplate.
