Summer Reading

July 12, 2010

This summer I have had a specific goal:  to READ! I’ve always wanted to be able to call myself a bookworm, but was never able to read for pleasure during college while reading for class. Now that I have some time on my hands I’m loving my newfound hobby. Here’s my [short] ever-changing list, gathered from friends’ suggestions, the best sellers shelves of Barnes & Noble, and my friend Kate who writes a great blog reviewing film and fiction. I’m working my way down the list.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, David Wroblewsk
[Because I love my dog.]

The Help, Kathryn Stocket
[Because it pulls your heartstrings.]

Julie & Julia, Julie Powell
[Because I love the cooking inspiration.]

Eating Animals, Jonathan Safran Foer
[Because I want to know more.]

Twelve Extraordinary Women
, John MacArthur
[Because it’s good for the soul.]

Know a good book I should add?

    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (if you haven’t already read it). I am trying to be better about reading too, and I couldn’t put this one down.

    Thanks so much for the blog shout out! I have another one I am reading right now that I just can’t put down- “The Impressionists” – so, so good and a great take on modern journalism. I will be reviewing it shortly :)

    Hey sweetie! finally am figuring out this blog stuff… I am in the middle of “Eating Animals”.. yikes!! Have you watched “Food,Inc”? It has totally changed the way I feed my family. Anna finally watched it with me this weekend. If you want to see it, I’ll send you the dvd on Amazon?? Let me know. From what I can tell (mid-book), the movie is mild compared to this book!!! I’ve been crying some… and visiting my health food store MUCH more!!! Love to you both (and Birch!!! – just wait til you read the book!)) Let’s plan a visit soon!!! We miss you!!! xo
