The Brian Lehrer Show is not live today, so we won't be taking any calls. As always, you can join the conversation online through our comments section (links below), on Facebook, or on Twitter through @BrianLehrer.

Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Pray, Love fame builds the ultimate summer reading list, and talks about some of her experiences with travel and meditation. Plus: Atlantic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates on his epic cover story from earlier this year, The Case For Reparations;  a conversation on whether buying a home is still a sound investment; and former all-star Mets pitcher and now children’s book author, R.A. Dickey.
