Summer reading list

One week from today and summer officially begins. With that in mind, I decided it was high-time I put together my summer reading list. Here’s what I have, so far …

  1. Persuasion, Jane Austen
  2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Stieg Larsson
  3. Shadow & Claw, Gene Wolfe
  4. Sword & Citadel, Gene Wolfe
  5. The Prince and other writings, Niccolò Machiavelli
  6. The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty
  7. Aunts Aren’t Gentleman, P.G. Wodehouse
  8. The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough
  9. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot
  10. When you are Engulfed in Flames, David Sedaris

It is quite measily, I’ll admit–all the more so considering that since the moment I started compiling the list and posted here, I’ve already read Shadow & Claw and I’ve nearly finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Oh well, all the more time to read things that may have absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever … like The Tenth Gift I picked up for $5.00 at Walgreens … or, great summer foo-foo reads, such as Janet Evanovich’s Sizzling Sixteen.

Of course, I’m more than happy to pick up a book or two that others have suggested … hint, hint
