I’m so excited to take the summer off. One thing I’m looking forward to most is reading! Reading for fun!
Here’s my list so far, in no particular order:
The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
The Seven Mouths of God by Megan K. Olsen
The Color of Water by James McBride
The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
Black Water by Joyce Carol Oates
Mother Wove the Morning by Carol Lynne Pearson
Granite and Rainbow by Virginia Woolf
An American Childhood by Annie Dillard
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard (reread)
Now Is the Time to Open Your Heart by Alice Walker
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
The Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir by Laurel Ulrich and Emma Lou Warner Thayne
That ought to keep me busy, but I welcome any suggestion for additions. Or substitutions. I imagine I’ll also read some fun YA stuff with my big kids. I haven’t read any of Brandon Mull’s Beyonders series yet. And Matthew’s working through Madeleine L’Engle’s Wrinkle In Time series, so I may find myself joining him in that. I love her books.
What about you? What will you be reading this summer?
