I knew I forgot a book! Also read "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger, author of "The Time Traveler's Wife". I didn't like the ending so much, but still really enjoyed the characters and the book overall.

We discussed Dewey last night. Everyone liked the book and I wasn't the only one who needed a box of tissue!

I don't seem to have time to read much and when I do it's on my Kindle app on my phone.

I've been reading a lot of different biographies. I'm currently working on Bloody Mary by Carolyn Erickson. It was written in the 70s, so the writing is somewhat dated. Before that I finished a biography of Gertrude Bell. She was an imminent Victorian who was famous for helping to create modern Iraq. Most people have no idea who she is, but she was quite the adventurer in her day.

Haven't read a whole lot of fiction. I was never much for fiction. Always preferred a good murder mystery.

PS - actually, there is a fiction that I should read this summer i.e. Lolita. That's a modern classic I haven't read yet. I suppose I should at some point. LOL !!!

It's time to break out the beach towels and a good book!

My vacation list included:
The Help
School of Essential Ingredients
Dogs of Riga
Angelology

I highly recommend The Help and School of Essential Ingredients!

My book club is discussing Dewey tomorrow night. Also a good read!

What's on your list?
