I love summer – I work as hard during the summer, but something about warm air, blooming flowers and longer days make it seem easier and more enjoyable. That might not be true — as the kids are around much more, I bet I work harder. 😉 But, with all that, summer also provides the possibility of climbing into a hammock and reading. A good chair works in winter – but a hammock is a very special thing.
So I thought we might talk books today. We are here, I assume, because we all like Jane Austen. The reasons for that can vary, but it does put us in a very select group – a “company of clever, well-informed people, who have a great deal of conversation” and perhaps similar reading tastes. (I couldn’t resist that Persuasion line.)
What are you reading this summer? Anything you’d recommend?
Here is my fiction list for this summer – we’ll see how far I get…
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid (I have started this and am thoroughly enjoying the writing and the cadence of the language. Early pages so I can’t tell you about the story yet…)
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
Seven Women and the Secret of their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
Thanks for stopping by today and sharing. Good books are spread by word of mouth – and we all love good books. 🙂
