Summer Life: Kwame’s Summer Reads

As I said in a previous post , Ive been enjoying the summer life. Now as great as all the barbecuing may be , and as much as I’ve enjoyed my trips to Rudys & Bev’s. There comes a time when the fun must be taken indoors. This has less to do with exhaustion and more to do with those wretched mosquitoes! In any event. During those moments of quiet , I have been doing quite a bit of reading.These are the books that are on my list of reads( in no particular order) before summers out.

Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin( finished)

City of Thieves by David Beinoff

The Cross of Redemption by James Baldwin

Seat of the Soul by Gary Zuhkov

Nobody Knows My Name by James Baldwin

The Strawberry Statement by James Simon Kunen

The Celestine Prophecy By James Redfield

N***** An Autobiography by Dick Gregory


My ultimate goal was to finish this list before school starts back up , and I definitely intend to try! The only foreseeable issue is that with every book I read or day that passes , I add at least two more books to the list. Oh well. Maybe what I will do when I finish, is make a list of the books I liked in order of impact and relevance to my own life and what I gained from each read. Until then. I’m off to read and enjoy the day , as you should.
