Craig I would like to suggest "Strength in What Remains" for an upcoming book club read.

Craig The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the modern classics Mountains Beyond Mountains and The Soul of a New Machine returns with the extraordinary true story of a young man and his will to survive

In this remarkable book, New York Times bestselling author Tracy Kidder once again delivers the masterful story of a hero for these modern times.

Deo grew up in the mountains of Burundi, and survived a civil war and genocide before seeking a new life in America. In New York City he lived homeless in Central Park before finding his way to Columbia University. But Deo’s story really begins with his will to turn his life into something truly remarkable; he returns to his native country to help people there, as well as people in the United States.

An extraordinary writer, Kidder has the remarkable ability to show us what it means to be fully human, and to tell the unadorned story of a life based on hope. Riveting and inspiring, this may be his most magnificent work to date. Strength in What Remains is a testament to the power of will and friendship, and of the endurance of the soul.

Edcb | 1 comments Hi guys! I would like to recommend 10 Days to Understanding Your College Daughter by Brett Wm. Habing. I'm sure all the dads out there who want to read 50 books a year would love to have this in their shelves. Let me know what you think of it. Thanks.

I just recently added this book to my to-read list after reading about it on a Borders email. It sounds so interesting.
