What Are You Reading? Summer Edition

Since the temperatures here in Nebraska are starting to climb into the 90s and we all know just how much I love heat (note the sarcasm), my brain isn't quite as sharp as it normally is. So for today's blog post, I figured I'd tell you what I was reading and then you can leave me a comment and tell me what you're reading.

I think I can handle that.

Heh.

I'm reading Forever by Pete Hamill. It's for our bookclub at work and I gotta admit, it's an amazing story. A long, amazing story, clocking in at more than 600 pages. But the writing is good, albeit very different. But I like that. Different is good. We're supposed to be done with the book by Friday and I'm not there yet, so I may have to do a bit of speed reading tonight.

Your turn!

  1. I am determined to put a dent in my TBR pile this summer. Right now I'm reading Julia Quinn's new release, but I want to get through a couple of my Elizabeth Chadwick books and at least 10 others before summer ends. Of course, by then I'll probably have added that many more to the pile...

  2. Kelly - Oh, isn't that always the way? More books added to the pile - I have so many now that I think I've forgotten some!

  3. I stayed awake until almost 3 AM to finish THE BRIGHT FOREVER, by Lee Martin. It was un-put-down-able.

  4. Hmm - sounds interesting! Though all I can think of is Duncan McLeod of the Clan McLeod *g*

    As for me, right now I'm reading Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro. Hoping to get to March by Geraldine Brooks and some other HF this summer as well. Though I have another Robyn Harding and the new Marian Keyes on reserve at the library.

    So MANY books, so little time.

  5. Lisa - I LOVE un-put-downable books, though they make for some bleary-eyed mornings at work!

    Tess - That's what I thought when I first heard this book - Highlander! But it's a lot different, and very good. And you're right - way too many books and not enough time!

  6. I *just* finished Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian. I LOVED it!! Now I'm working my way throough Victoria Thompson's Gaslight Mysteries. It's a really fun series. :)

  7. I just finished a book of the original Winnie-the-Pooh stories, and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. I'm about to start In Plain Sight which is apparently a funny mystery with an elderly lady as the detective. Then, I have FireFly or something like that by Piers Anthony, and a book of novellas by Nora Roberts, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Anna Karenina, a biography on Walt Disney, and a load of other classics, plus a chick lit.

    Miss Snark is to blame for Shopaholic. She's right- not a gripping read, but it's like candy and hard to put down.
