If you haven’t picked up a book from your summer reading list yet, it’s not too late.

To help you out, I’m taking a look at what Utah’s politicians have on their summer reading lists. This is the first in the series. 

Senator Pat Jones represents Utah’s Fourth Senate District, covering much of the east side of Salt Lake County. She will be retiring at the end of her current term.

Says Senator Jones about her summer reading: “I’m reading And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini   He wrote The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, two of my favorite novels.”




ATMEAnd the Mountains Echoed, by Khaled Hosseini

Amazon summary:

Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

Pick up one or more of the books on this list over on Amazon.  Previously posted at Publius Online
