If you’re like us, you like to take a book or audiobook when you travel. So, some of our doctors decided to share some of the books they like to read or listen to. Maybe you’ll find something that piques your interest in the list below.

Friday Night LightsOphthalmologist Adrian Elfersy, MD

Dr. ElfersyConcord, Salisbury, and University

“Friday Night Lights; A Town, a Team, and a Dream” by H.G Bissinger. If you love football, this will be the best book you will ever read. If you don't love football, it might still be the best book you will ever read. It is absolutely compelling in so many ways.

The Bishop's PawnA Higher LoyaltyOphthalmologist Robert Flores, MD

Dr. FloresSouthPark, Matthews

I read James Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty,” where I learned a lot about how the FBI and Executive branches of government interact. A fun read is Steve Berry’s “The Bishop’s Pawn,” an entertaining fiction based around Martin Luther King’s assassination.

Ophthalmologist Sumit Gupta, MDIn Shock

Dr. GuptaUniversity

“In Shock: My Journey from Death to Recovery and the Redemptive Power of Hope,” by Rana Awdish. This is a book about a doctor’s near-death experience and how it changed her and her hospital culture at large. It was also written by my high school classmate!

Ophthalmologist Kashyap Kansupada, MDWhen Breath Becomes Air

Dr. KansupadaBelmont, Huntersville, Pineville

"When Breath Becomes Air," by Paul Kalanithi. The book is expertly written by a physician diagnosed with cancer and describes how resilient, transcending, and transformative life can be regardless of one’s station.

ENT doctor Tim Kelly, MDJesuit Guide to Almost EverythingThe Nightingale

Dr. KellyFort Mill, Rock Hill

I just finished “The Nightingale,” by Kristin Hannah, a historical fiction novel about two sisters in World War II. I’m currently reading “The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything,” by a Jesuit priest, Father James Marten.

ENT doctor Roy Lewis, MDFarm Fresh ForensicsThe Snowman

Dr. LewisMooresville

"The Snowman," by Jo Nesbo. A fascinating thriller if you haven't seen the movie.

"Farm Fresh Forensics: Life Between The Barnyard & The Body Farm," by Sheridan Langford. A fun read about crime scene life in Houston and farm life outside of Houston.

Ophthalmologist Timothy Saunders, MDEven at the Grave

“Even at the Grave,” by my wife, Lisa G. Saunders, has multiple heart-warming stories of love and faith that come together through end-of-life experiences.

ENT doctor Nicholas Stowell, MD1776

“1776,” by David McCullough. If you like American history, you’ll love this book, which chronicles the year 1776. It’s a great read for Independence Day.
