Thursday, July 8, 2010

I love books. My house is covered in them. I have recently opted to leave the television off after work and curl up with a good book instead. Here is my 2010 Summer Reading List. What's on yours?

1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
2. Water for Elephants Sara Gruen
3. The Elegance of the Hedgehog Muriel Barbery
4. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
5. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

  5. "Water for Elephants" is fantastic. Read the whole thing at an airport bar on a layover. I want to catch up on some classics - recently read "Pride and Prejudice" for the first time & am now obsessed with reading all of Jane Austen's books. So that's my list. :)
