Reading list: Summer Reading List 2016
It's that time of year again - my summer reading list. I choose nine books, three for each month, covering particular categories, which make the list manageable and leaves lots of room for serendipity. (However, inevitably, I only get eight read - one book always just eludes me. But it shows up again on the next year's list.) The reading period runs from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend. (My Memorial Day weekend actually started on Wednesday this year, so we're off and running. I'll give the categories in the notes for each book. Join in if you like, and we'll talk about books this summer.
Note: A Michael Chabon book. I've read all of the novels, so I can't wait for his new one, set to release at the end of the year!
Note: A classic I've neglected. Yep, it's time for War and Peace. The new miniseries pushed me in that direction, I won't lie.
Note: A play. I've meant to read some Churchill for a long time, and this will help give the list some gender balance.
Note: A recent "big" book - "big" meaning both a popular title and a long book. (We used to call these "fat" books when I was a kid.)
Note: Carryover from Last Year. Last year it was the "Recommendation from a Friend." And now she's loaned it to me, so it won't be the book that gets missed in 2016.
Note: An Ian McEwan Book. I've read most of his recent books; now I'm working my way backward.
Note: A baseball book.
Note: A recommendation from a friend. My most trusted and beloved friend.
Note: A YA book. For obvious reasons. Will also try to read "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." For the same obvious reasons.
