Current Reading August 2011

Posted: August 22, 2011 in Books

Currently I am Reading:

1809 Thunder on the Danube: Napoleon’s Defeat of the Habsburgs  Volume III: Wagram and Znaim by John H. Gill

I finally got around to getting the 3rd and final volume of this excellent history of the 1809 Danube Campaign.

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Picked up a copy in the Borders purge.  Good read so far, although I’ve heard that the following books go downhill.

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits  by Philip Fisher

Seems I’ve misplaced this book, so I didn’t manage to finish it. One of the foundational books on investing.  I usually read one or more solid (non-fad type) books on investing in a year.  This year I decided to read Philip Fisher.  I was going to read one of several books by his son Ken Fisher, but decided to start with the older work.  It’s one of the books that lit Warren Buffett off on his career.  (Not that I’m going to make a new career out of investing).

Winning on Purpose  by John Edmund Kaiser

“How to Organize Congregations to Succeed in Their Mission”  Our Ministry Council of Lay Elders and Pastors is reading through this together to give us perspective on where we stand as a Council, Congregation, and Church body.

What I’ve finished Reading:

Too busy with summer stuff to actually get much reading done in the last month.
