Having fun isn't hard, if you've got a library card.

I don't know if any of you have taken advantage of Mass Transit, but it offers one great perk that driving does not begin to match. You can read!

This Summer, taking the bus to and from Wilmington, I had the opportunity to read some good books.

And they are:

"The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster
"Letter to a Young Catholic" by George Weigel
"Travels with Charley: In Search of America" by John Steinbeck
"The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara
"A Man for All Seasons" by Robert Bolt
"The Life of the Mind" by James Schall S.J. (finishing from last Summer)

and, before I go back to school, I am working on finishing

"The Ball and the Cross" by G. K. Chesterton
and "The Education of a Wandering Man" by Louis L'Amour

Anybody have a reading list from the Summer that they'd like to share? Anything particularly good?

Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller and Three Cups of Tea are some good books. I think if you want to read some classics To Kill a Mockingbird is always a good choice, too.

The Killer Angels is probably my favoritest book of all time.

Another good book that I've been working on all summer is called "Confederate Agent", which is a biography about a confederate secret agent who was based in Toronto and almost brought the North to its knees during the Civil War.
