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.
