Pages and Pages.

I have been spending the majority of my days reading. I love reading, and I wish that I had  made more time for it. But, the reality is that I don't read much outside of my required reading, and even then I don't always get that done. At least I enjoy it. But, it means that I haven't washed the dishes in four or five days, our place looks like a bomb shelter, and you can just forget laundry. Can't have it all, right?

I'm currently reading....

A few of my favorites are...

What are your favorite books? Are there any that I should add to my summer reading list?

I am on a personal mission to get my friends to read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. Long title, great book! Its about a boy with autism. Since my work involves kids with special needs, I am especially fond of it. If you get a chance, you should read it.

"The Shipping News" and "Anna Karenina" are some of my favorites as well.

Other great books I'd read again in a heartbeat:
"Out Stealing Horses," Per Petterson
"The Museum of Innocence," Orhan Pamuk
"Swann's Way," Marcel Proust
"Cane," Jean Toomer

Congrats on the new house, too! It's SO gorgeous. I'm excited to see what kind of projects you'll undertake there.

I read chick lit. I just like fun, easy reads that I can burn through quickly. Lately I've been reading Jane Green, thanks to a suggestion from another blogger -- they aren't *quite* as flippant as some others. I also love Jennifer Wiener, she's definitely a smart, fun writer!

I LOVE Caramelo. Even better in Spanish. Excellent choices, dear.

~Eat Cake...that was a fairly good book. It was inspiring and imaginative.
~The Visitation is literally my favorite book of all time.
~The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy. Tom Feathery by Maeve Binchy. The Return Journey by Maeve Binchy. Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy. Quentins by Maeve Binchy. Do you see a pattern here?

Ok so The Giver is one of my FAVORITE books. If you read it then next you have to read Gathering Blue and then thirdly The Messenger. Lowry doesn't consider them a trilogy but the chatacters in The Giver and Gathering Blue both show up in The Messenger. You need to read them in that order. They are all so wonderful. When you start reading them tell me what you think.
