Summer reading

I love to read all year round, but on a warm afternoon when you’re barely maintaining consciousness, with a cold lemonade and a stack of saltines at hand – mmmm…..  NPR has done its first installment on summer reading, which drives me crazy, because I am compelled with every story to immediately go out and find all these books.  I enjoy haunting second-hand book shops, and I recently discovered an on-line book swapping service which I hope to use to my advantage.  At least I do eventually read all the books I pick up, unlike CDs – which I like to buy but don’t necessarily have to listen to…doesn’t make sense, I know, but there it is.

Anywho, you can go to www.npr.org/booksto find all their recommendations.  I’m going to finish off a light Maeve Binchy and then pick up “The Geography of Bliss” by Eric Weiner to start my summer reading.  I may need to add a hammock to my shopping list for this weekend…
