All three of us Temple Shalom rabbis love to read! Here are our picks for this month:
Post below and tell us what you are reading – we could always use some good ideas!
I am reading (only 3??? Are you kidding?)
1. My fun reading — The Litigators by John Grisham (just finished Portrait of a Spy by Daniel Silva)
2. Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality by Dr. Henry Cloud (one of the presenters at the Willow Creek Global Leadership Conference this summer with whom I am also taking an online course,)
3. We Are All Weird by Seth Godin (also a Willow Creek presenter)
4. And on my Kindle, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, A Letter in the Scrol
But I recommend everyone go to the New England Mobile Book Fair to buy books (or your local bookseller. It’s not that I don’t order online. I do, but I prefer to be surrounded by the books).
Here’s what’s on my nightstand/kindle right now:
1. (The Jewish book on my nightstand) Margie Klein & Or Rose, Righteous Indignation: A Jewish Call for Justice
2. Seth Godin, We are all Weird
1. Same as Rabbi Gurvis – I just finished The Litigators by John Grisham. Not his best work – but fun
2. For my American Jewish Short Story class – The Shawl and Rosa – short stories by Cynthia Ozick. Incredibly powerful – The Shawl has been haunting me for weeks.
3. (This one I’m embarrassed to admit) Toddler 411-Clear Answers and Smart Advice for Your Toddler by Dr. Ari Brown and Denise Fields. We all need a little help potty-training our two year olds…
4. My new favorite book – film is coming out soon – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
