Summer Reading List 2015

PicCollage(1)What’s on your reading list this summer?

I’ve picked 3 books at random…2 from the local library (I love libraries!) and 1 that was given to me:

The Book of Dharma: Making Enlightened Choices by Simon Haas was actually not a book I chose but a gift from a dear friend of mine. She told me about this book a while back, and I’ve had it on my www.amazon.com wishlist for some time now. From the description on the back cover, I think this book might be slightly similar to The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. It says: “The Book of Dharma discloses the elusive Dharma Code, an age-old system for making enlightened choices and fulfilling our highest potential.”

Ulvehjerter (Wolves Hearts) by Puk Damsgård Andersen is a documentary about a group of people belonging to the Mahsud Tribe in Waziristan, Pakistan – an area of the world that is considered a recruiting base for the Taliban. The author is a famous Danish TV journalist who works (and risks her life) in the Middle East and has written several books about the people she’s met and the things she’s experienced. I read an interview with her in a Danish magazine that made me curious to read her story.

Den Afrikanske Jomfru (The African Virgin) by Helle Vincentz is part of a trilogy written by a Danish author that I went to school with from 1994-1997. I don’t actually know her (we weren’t in the same classes back then), I just know of her and who she is. She is the only author I sort of “know”, so I’m really curious to read this novel. The story is about Caroline Kayser who works for an oil company in Copenhagen, Denmark, and travels to Kenya to handle the company’s PR after an incident where one of its employees is involved in the rape of young village girls.
