A couple of summers ago I finally tackled "War and Peace" with the new translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. This book is not as intimidating as people make it sound.
Last summer I had fun with Stieg Larrson's Millennium series - "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," etc. That series makes a great summer read.
So, this summer, so far it's just a hodge podge of this and that. No theme, which may be fine because I have a lot of things on my Kindle I haven't read, and a few tempting books sitting in a pile in my room. First on my list from the stack of books will probably be James Wood's "How Fiction Works" and Luis Alberto Urrea's "The Hummingbird's Daughter" From my Kindle, I'll probably read "Brownsville Stories" by Texas author Oscar Casares, and I downloaded the complete Wizard of Oz series - with illustrations - for a buck (love the public domain!). After that, I'll just grab the next book in the pile that appeals to me at the moment.
How about ya'll, my Texas friends? What are you fixin' to read?
I've got several things (mostly Gothic that are referenced in Austen's books) on my Kindle, and I'm re-reading my entire library in an effort to get rid of stuff, and make some room.
Unfortunately, because I keep selecting my favorite books to re-read, I'm not making much headway in getting rid of stuff . . . yet. :-)
I'll also be reading anything I get from authors and LT.
