What are we reading in August?

I just started Unbroken. I started it before, but got diverted from it to other things. So I'm finally getting back to it.

Also on the list is Commonwealth by Ann Pachett for our book discussion group.

I also just got Timothy Snyder's On Tyranny: 20 lessons from the 20th century. It's a small book, a quick read. I've seen him on a number of talk shows and thought it would be worthwhile.

The other book I just rec'd was The Short Stories of Saki. I borrowed it from the library, and I found them delicious short reads I'd rather savor and keep over time rather than pour through in a week or so and be done with it. I suspect they'd be great entertainment as many of his stories would go great around a campfire as they're meant to be read aloud. His most familiar one is probably The Open Window.
