http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | By now, summer is winding down and so, probably, is that John Grisham book you started in June. But what will you be reading the summer of 2015?

"Harry Potter and the Half-Crazed Cubicle Partner" — Now in his eighth year at the Ministry of Magic, an increasingly pudgy Potter struggles with a Dementor-infested copying machine, ministry-wide restrictions on personal E-owl and, most vexingly, his office mate, Parvati Patil, who calls him "Hotty Potty," and is constantly climbing into his (ample) lap only to giggle, slap him and fly back to her desk. Recommended only for those who loved "Harry Potter and the Help Desk Cabal."

"The Da Spirito Code" — Having lost all interest in what he calls "stupid conspiracy theories" and "old Christian hooey," author Dan Brown turns from writing to cooking in '08. In this, his first novel since the hiatus, Brown roars back with a white-knuckle search for an ancient herb used by maverick monks in medieval France to perk up parsnip stews.

"The 5 Trillion People You Meet in Purgatory" — They're all here and all inspiring . . . more or less. The inner city violin teacher who failed to report her tutoring income to the IRS. The baker who always gave bread to the homeless but once told his mother to "Can it!" when she started gushing about his brother's new Lexus again. The lovable old lady who stole a roll of toilet paper from the senior center. Lots of stories, lots of regret and, all told, a rather sobering read.

"The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Authors" — Sit down. Start typing. Simplify. Everything you need to know to become a best-selling business guru PLUS another 26 madeup anecdotes and a couple of bar graphs. Highly recommended for office bookshelves.

"Who Moved My Leg?" — Coping with change and ambush amputation in the increasingly cutthroat world of office politics.

"French Men Don't Get Bald" — And did we mention French children don't get cavities? And French dogs don't get meatball breath? More nyah-nyahs from across the sea.
