First, I'm reading Silence by Shusaku Endo which is a fictional account of a Catholic priest who sneaks into Japan in the 1600's when Christians are being persecuted.
The second book is Magic by the Lake by Edward Eager. This book written for older children is hilariously fun and imaginative.
And the third is an audiobook, The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Hooray for damsels in distress and the knights who save them! Beautifully written and narrated.
