Yesterday I graduated from Canadian Mennonite University with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Biblical and Theological Studies, and a double minor in Philosophy and Peace and Conflict Transformation Studies. Last summer most of my reading was focussed on my thesis. This summer, I hope to delve into a mixture of things. I will be reading books that have intrigued me in the footnotes of other books, literature recommended to me by my friends, books related to my work in Pauingassi First Nation over the next several months, as well as a few simply chosen by their snappy title. What are your summer reading plans, dear blog readers? Or, what are some books that I absolutely must add to my list (considering my interests, of course)?
