Summer Reading List

I have an enormous stack of books waiting to be read this summer. Hopefully, I can finish most of them. (The most effective way to finish a large number of books is to read two at a time.)
  1. The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel
  2. The Troubled Waters of Evolution, Henry M. Morris
  3. Darwin's Black Box, Michael J. Behe
  4. One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven, Mark Cahill
  5. The Heavenly Man, Brother Yun with Paul Hattaway
  6. 7 Men Who Rule the World From the Grave, Dave Reese
  7. Utopia, Sir Thomas More
  8. Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad
  9. Beowulf, translated by Seamus Heaney*
  10. Burial at Thebes: A Version of Sophocles' Antigone, by Seamus Heaney*
  11. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, translated by J.R.R. Tolkein*
*Do not own yet

I have read Heart of Darkness (required reading in high school) and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (required reading in college). I have many, many, many books on my shelf to read. Some day when I'm not a student anymore perhaps I will start reading them!

'Heart of Darkness' is so boring. It is one of the few books I have given up on.

I like 'Antigone'.

'Utopia' is an odd choice.

Why is Utopia an odd choice? It was on sale at the bookstore, so I got it.

Hey, throw in Animal Farm by George Orwell, along with Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command by Timothy Zahn.

Wow. If matt can't finish it, it must be boring. :D

'Utopia' is not exactly a very Christian book. Worth reading for education I am sure. I have read stuff by Nietzche, which I suppose is worse.

PB, I read 'Dark Force Rising' and I read a comic adaptation of 'Last Command'. I renounced Star Wars a couple of years ago because I thought I was addicted. I have not even seen the last movie.

Animal Farm is good.

I read Animal Farm when I was 15 and liked it.

Haven't read any of the others you suggested, Robert. BTW, nice picture.

Carey, my little busy bee. I guess it's only normal that bees get busier in the summer!

I would like to read books dismissing evolution because of all religions, I find it to be the most offensif.

I don't look like a monkey, I don't act like a monkey, none of my ancestors were monkeys and no one is turning into a monkey.

The only monkey is my high school biology teacher who actually belives that by the year 3000, humans will have tails.

Tails? *falls out of chair laughing*

If you're really feeling ambitious I have some books by Foucault that you can borrow...
