B. Goldman

I'd love to know what you read this summer.  I liked many of the books I read including The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey (first Lunch Book Club
read this year), Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, My Name Is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, The Charmed Circle by Susan Ertz, The One Hundred
Year Old Man Who Climbed O
ut of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Johasson (Staff book club read) and am currently reading Grit: the
Power of Passion and Perseverance
by Angela Duckworth (Staff book club read).  B. Goldman

R. Mobley

I read two novels about unsung heroes in France during WW II:  The Paris Architect, by Charles Belfoure, and The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah.
I really enjoyed The 100-year-old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, by Jonas Jonasson.  On the dark side, The Orphan Master's
Son, by Adam Johnson, painted a stark picture of cruelty in North Korea under a communist regime. In between the above, I read three page-flippers:  
Live by Night, by Dennis Lehane; The Associate, by John Grisham, and The Client, also by Grisham.  Finally, I just finished Grit by Angela Duckworth. 
This book helped me understand why some people with loads of talent aren't as successful as others who don't have the same gifts but who have a
"never quit" mindset.
