im not as much of a reader as i wish i was, but i just started reading "the mountain of silence" by kyriacos markides. its not a super quick read, but its pretty easy to understand so far. (im only 2.5 chapters in...)
it has a lot of information about the church in the context of a story which is actually pretty interesting. its not textbook style at all. check it out and read some reviews. it was recommended to me by a priest.
i listen to podcasts more often than i read though. i seem to digest the information better that way! i enjoy "the illumined heart" podcast, but there are many to choose from.
