August 2021 Book Log

Here are the 10 books I read in August (this includes three rereads). This brings my 2021 total to 73 books. The high total was aided by a few days on the beach early in the month.

(I must always clarify that I read many books with which I disagree. I learn the most by reading things that do not represent my position.)

The General Vs The President: MacArthur and Truman at the Brink of Nuclear Way by HW Brands

Countdown 1945: The Extraordinary Story of the Atomic Bomb and the 116 Days that Changed the World by Chris Wallace

The Plague Year: America in the Time of COVID by Lawrence Wright

As You Go: An Honest Look at the First Followers of Jesus by Hulitt Gloer

The Disciples by Emil Kraeling

Dairy of a Pastor’s Soul by Craig Barnes (Reread)

Small Town Jesus: Taking the Gospel Mission Seriously in Seemingly Unimportant Places by Donnie Griggs (Reread)

The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson

Here is New York by EB White (Reread) (I’ve read this book a handful of times. I can’t fully explain my love for it.)

One thought on “August 2021 Book Log

    Since you read a couple of books on the development of the atomic bomb, you might like reading Brighter Than A Thousand Suns by Robert Jungk. It’s the story of the Manhattan Project. I’ve read it a couple of times and find it to be really interesting.
