Summer reading

I got a Kindle and love it. This way I can keep doing what I always do - read 15 books at the same time but without having to carry all of them around.

right now have these loaded onto Kindle

Why be happy when you could be normal  - Jeanette Wintersson

The folded clock - Heidi Julavitz

My Venice and other essays - Donna Leon

H is for Hawk  - Helen Macdonald

Wolf Hall Hilary Mantel

We are all completely beside ourselves Karen Joy Fowler

Brought paper books too: 

Ellen Tebbitts by Beverly Cleary

Ramona the Brave by Beverly Cleary

and this one. 

what are you reading?

  1. Hi!
    I recently finished Tim Kreider's We Learn Nothing, which manages to be funny and engaging while intelligently addressing serious topics. Loved Michael Perry's humorous, touching memoirs about small town life (Population 485 and Truck: A Love Story.) The Fug Girls' The Royal We is ideal summer reading.

    I haven't recently read them, but I can't pass up the opportunity to recommend two delightful mystery authors: Sparkle Hayter's Robin Hudson series (the first, What's a Girl Gotta Do?, is available now for 1.99 on Amazon US!) and Sarah Caudwell's witty books (paper version only); start with Thus Was Adonis Murdered.

  2. Har precis läst Fierce Attachments av Vivian Gornick och tyckte att den var smått fantastisk! Handlar om Vivans uppväxt och liv i NYC och relationen med hennes mor. Spännande beskrivning av deras liv, av att göra andra val än sin mor och konsekvenserna av det, stadens förändring med mera. Rekommenderas!
