Saturday

summer reading

Editorgirl asked for a summer reading list.

First, a caveat . . . These are not necessariously examples of stellar writing. I've selected a list of books that I've read and enjoyed. It is a list of books that if I had more time and a smaller stack of unread books on my nightstand, I would like to read again. Also, it is heavily biased toward children's and YA. That's what I like to read most. It's good stuff.

I've had How the Irish Saved Civilization on my home bookshelf for a while. I was wondering how good it was. Hmm. I may need to make a trip to B&N today for The Alchemist, too...I've been wanting to read that one and have heard great reviews of it, yours included.

Ask and ye shall receive. . . I don't even think I asked on this blog.

I admit to feeling rather pleased with myself that I've read some of these. In fact, some of my favorites are on here. And the rest. . . *scans list again*. . . guess I'd better get started.

(Thanks Edgy!)

It's convenient that About a Boy is the first on the list that I haven't read and it's also a book that I want to read now after seeing the movie last night.

A little too convenient, now that I think about it. Edgy, are you and eg involved in some kind of conspiracy?

Edgy said...

What I especially likes with About a Boy is that the movie and the book are not exactly the same. And that's a good thing.

Now, why would eg and I be involved in some conspiracy?

I have read 12 1/2 of these books.

Wow. I've read shamefully few of those. This, in combination with lists from Eleka and Petra, should keep me busy for a while.
