Vacation Reading

One of the pre-vacation rituals in our home involves careful selection of the books which will accompany us.  Here is my stack for our upcoming time away.

From the top: Concerning the Inner Life by Evelyn Underhill (dipping into this one again); The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer (nearing the end); The Gift of Good Land by Wendell Berry (halfway through); The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon (halfway through); How To Write A Sentence by Stanley Fish; The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell (recommended and loaned to me by our upstairs neighbors); My Long Trip Home by Mark Whitaker (advance copy sent by a friend); the latest issue of Books and Culture.

Looks to be a good vacation.

  1. “The Sparrow,” and its sequel “Children of God” were the best books I read in 2010 (which for me is really saying something.) I’d be interested in hearing what you think, but I would suggest you read them both.
