Overly Ambitious Summer Reading List

Summer is approaching, and I've been building up the stack on my nightstand in anticipation. It's not really that my ability to pick up a book is seasonally dependent, but things do slow down at the church during these months and I have some vacation time coming up, so the prospect of tackling such a list seems a little easier.

Here, then, is what I'm hoping to read this summer. Honestly, If I make it through 3-4 of these, I'll call it a win.

  • Facing the Music by Jennifer Knapp
  • Zen Guitar by Philip Toshio Sudo
  • If These Walls Could Talk: Detroit Tigers by Mario Impemba and Mike Isenberg
  • Being Mortal by Atul Gawande
  • Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore
  • The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
  • The Walking Dead Volume 23 by Robert Kirkman
  • Sabbath as Resistance by Walter Brueggemann
  • Fiddlehead by Cherie Priest

So: a memoir, music theory, baseball, end-of-life issues, a few graphic novels, spirituality, and steampunk. I like variety. And there's always the potential for more to be added: I have an even longer list of "to eventually tackle" books, some of which won't be released until fall. But for now I should probably stick with the above.

What's on your list?
