Books read in 2017 Q3

It is time for another book report, right before I depart for a long trip. My goal this year is to read 50 books, 20 of which from shelves at home. I finished 12 in Q3. According to Goodreads, I am one book behind schedule. Not too bad – still three months left to catch up. 🙂

Here are the books I finished in the third quarter:

  1. The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
  2. A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis by Devin Brown
  3. Life Reimagined: The Science, Art, and Opportunity of Midlife by Barbara Bradley Hagerty
  4. The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
  5. The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel
  6. Havana Storm by Clive Cussler & Dirk Cussler
  7. The Cross of Christ by John R.W. Stott
  8. Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain
  9. The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan by Robert Kanigel
  10. 100 Photographs: The Most Influential Images of All Time by The Editors of Time Magazine
  11. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
  12. The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America by Erik Larson

Three of these are from shelves at home (behind the goal again). I enjoyed most books on this list. Fictions #1 and #4 are very good; Non-fictions #8, #9, #10, and #12 are really informative, I learned quite a lot from each one.

I need to finish 14 books in the next quarter to reach my goal of 50… Not sure I can accomplish the 20-books-from-shelves goal though, as that requires an impossible 9 in Q4.🙂 Keep reading… till the next report.
