I'm currently reading three non fiction works, That Divine Order and The Music of Painting: Music, Modernism and the Visual Arts by Peter Vergo, and Understanding Italian Opera by Tim Carter.

I'm just starting The Prose Factory by D.J. Taylor, which is a larger book than I had expected ...

Finished The Private City. It's a look at the social history of Philadelphia in three time spans, Revolutionary War time, 1840's and 50's, and 1920's, illustrating how the American attitude of money and business first (thus private property) has run the growth and development of the city.

I'm most of the way through The Wet and the Dry, a hybrid travel narrative-memoir offering - title refers to the ... conflicted (hypocritical often) status of alcohol in the Islamic world.

I've just started to dip into Grounded: finding God in the world--a spiritual revolution and I'm loving the fact that the first chapter is titled Dirt. This theologist is referencing multiple books on agriculture that I've been reading recently.

I just finished Infidel, which was fascinating and thought-provoking, especially in light of the Brussels attacks. And yesterday I started Just Mercy, which I am already loving and can't wait to leave work so I can get back into it.

I just finished The Rebels' Hour and Black Boy (American Hunger), both excellent reads. I was pleasantly surprised that even though the topic of Rebels is so heavy, she managed to make it very readable and I flew right through it.

My intertwined interests center around Africa, world history, and biblical studies. Representing those three loci, I'm currently in the middle of A Linguistic Geography of Africa, The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome, and Paul and the Faithfulness of God. All excellent in their own ways. I'm also plowing through The Art of Betrayal: The Secret History of MI6, but I've found it's not nearly as interesting as the title sounds.

Also finished Mindful Eating by Jan Chozen Bays

I finished Wedding of the Waters a week or so into the month. I followed that book with Born for Liberty, which I finished on Monday. I'm now a few chapters into White Heat.

Erie canal, women in America, and Emily Dickinson. Apparently I was on a 'Merica reading binge in March.

Hey everyone! About to work on my next project and looking to provide value on developing leadership qualities. This will be a book published on Amazon. But it would be useful to know what are some of the challenges that people face when it comes to leadership. Would love to hear your comments and stories... hopefully this will also help answering questions and provide solutions in my book.

Just started Gulp. Amusing and informative.

I'm just past midway through The Shadow Club by Casati, which unpacks epistemology, astronomy, geography, and lots of other interesting material from a popular history of science centered on shadows.
