Time to post the annual Summer Reading List.
For the past year and a half, I've worked diligently to only read off my To Be Read shelf and basket. I've done quite well and the number of my unread books has gone down substantially. But as I put together my 2016 Summer Reading List, I've digressed. After months of wedding planning followed by implementation and the hosting of many visitors, I've treated myself and purchased several new books. Included also are a few from my shelf including a classic or two.
I've linked them to Amazon for easy viewing, but, as always, support your local independent bookstore.
On my Audible, I have
Voyager -- Diana Gabaldon (have read that about three or four times but must get ready for next season of Outlander)
I say Summer Reading List, but due to my fluttering mind when it comes to which book I might like to read next, a trip to the library might alter my course. As an eternal lover of summer, I pretend summer doesn't end until my garden freezes. That is usually sometime in December and by then I normally have all those on my Summer list completed.
As mentioned above and in past posts, we've recently had a wedding -- my middle son has a lovely bride. Working on that post as I'm waiting for more photos. After all the festivities, I got away from my reading and daily writing so I've been in hibernation the past couple weeks as I work to settle my mind and get back on track before oldest son's first baby comes in a couple weeks. Too much excitement around here for me, the closet recluse.
I did read The Nest this past week
which was the perfect mindless book to get back into the swing. Not much depth. Pageturner.
What's on your Summer Reading List?
