Summer Reading

by Rachael on July 17, 2013

With L gone for the week to Camp Grandma and Grandpa in Connecticut, I had imagined that I would be able to put things in order at home and finish up some neglected projects. Instead, the heat has addled my mind, and I can just about manage to get dressed in the morning. Thank goodness we’re going on vacation soon.

where my soul residesHow I long to be there already, sitting on the front deck with a book on my lap and the view of the mountains before me! I’ll be bringing too many books. Or maybe not — in past years, the four- or five-hour car ride across New England has given me more than enough time to finish a book. Perhaps this year that book will be The Savage Detectives, which I’ve been reading on and off since December. Afterward, I hope to read …

So there’s some randomness to the collection, which I’m fretting about a bit, because vacations are rare and the only time I get to indulge in books. Will I ever actually get to Audre Lorde’s essays or The Woman Upstairs, let alone Neil Gaiman’s new novel, among others? A friend recently mentioned that instead of watching movies or TV, she would rather enjoy her evenings by sitting and reading with her husband. That sounds good. Maybe when we get back.

In the meantime, I won’t be posting for a couple weeks. See you here again at the end of July!

What do you plan to read this summer?
