Summer Reading 2013

I thought I’d try something new on the old blog today, dear readers. Let me know what you think.

And if you listen long enough to hear me talk about Rebecca Harrington, here’s the article that I couldn’t stop laughing at.  AGOMYR, this one’s for you!  🙂

  1. Yay!!! At last we meet Glass of Milk! Just took out “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao,” HIGHLY recommended by my coworker, who reads and reads and reads. Supposed to be very funny. I went through a Sarah Dessen phase last summer–so read all 10 of them–fabulous summer reading. Just finished “The History of Love,” which was good but too much work (too many machinations and conceits by the author–would have preferred an A-to-Z type plot). For summer reading, highly recommend “Rules of Civility,” “The Samurai’s Garden,” “The Last Convertible,” “Snow Falling on Cedars,” “Out Stealing Horses,” “Envious Moon,” “The Deep End of the Ocean,” “The Dive from Clausen’s Pier,” and “You’re Not You.” On the serious side, just read Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried,” “Going After Cacciato,” and “In the Lake of the Woods,” all about his time in Viet Nam, all fiction, absolutely top-notch writing about a sad time in our history. Nice work, Glass of Milk! You seem like a really nice person!

  2. All I could think about during this is, “How good readers find books.”
    But once I work through my stack of 5th grade books, can’t wait to try “Penelope,” “Bloom,” and “Ways of Going Home.”
