Summer Reading…a revision of my 2013 list


At the beginning of this year I wrote a list of 24 book that I wanted to read; 12 fiction, 12 non-fiction. Six months have passed and I’ve succeeded in reading two of those, both fiction. So here is a revised list of books. I have downsized on both fiction and nonfiction, because I hope to get all of them done this summer. I’ve kept the ones already finished in the list.

Non-fiction:

  1. Under the Tuscan Sun: I am partially through this book. I will finish it! I am determined.
  2. Cold Tangerines: Same goes. I’ve been trying to get through this for a while. I really want to finish it this summer.
  3. A Moveable Feast: I’ve wanted to read this for a while. Open Books brings new ideas into my life and this was one of them.
  4. Bird by Bird: Ann Lamott’s book has sat unread too long. I’ve heard wonderful things.
  5. How to Read Like a Professor: Do I really need to say why I want to read this?
  6. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking: I have my copy now and have heard marvelous reviews!
  7. 1776: I’m gonna finish. I know I am.

Fiction:

  1. Daddy Long Legs and Dear Enemy: I really do want to finish this one, the first half was so cute!
  2. Anna Karenina: I’m really enjoying this! I didn’t think I would. But this is another that I want to finish now.
  3. The Casual Vacancy: Another “to finish” book.
  4. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
  5. Bartleby the Scrivener
  6. Toad of Toad Hall: It’s a play that I know I’m going to love, so I must read it.
  7. Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: I kept it from my Chicago days, so I really should get around to reading it.

Eleven books to read, most of them, I’m simply finishing, but I’ll be happy to have more on my “read” list.

Happy summer!

    Do you have Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore? I’m trying to decide whether to add that one to my list of summer reading. I love seeing Anna Karenina on your list, as well as The Casual Vacancy and Quiet! You have inspired me. I may make my own decided summer list of reading goals.

      I do not have the 24-Hour Bookstore, but it is on my list to read this year; I’ve heard wonderful things. And you should always make a list, so you know how distracted you got over the summer. 😉
