In his last podcast, Stephen described the virtues of a reading life. He explored some benefits of reading not often considered, like that it is an antidote to the frantic pace of our times and that disciplined reading serves as an indicator of the state of the soul. In this podcast, Stephen lists some books he believes will make wonderful summer reading, while also explaining the good each of these books can bring to our lives.
