There’s something special about reading in the summer. Maybe it’s the warm breezes and cool beverages, maybe it’s just that the days are longer and slower. But whatever it is, it makes selecting a big ‘ole pile of books to read over the next months even more exciting and satisfying. This is mine (so far):
- My Friend the Mercenary – James Brabazon
- The Sisters Brothers – Patrick DeWitt
- Lowside of the Road: A Life of Tom Waits – Barney Hoskyns
- On Writing – Stephen King
- Reading Women – Stephanie Staal
- Fifty Shades of Grey – E L James
- In the Garden of Beasts – Erik Larson
- Jagger: Rebel, Rock Star, Rambler, Rogue – Marc Spitz
- Nobody Likes You: Inside the Turbulent Life, Times and Music of Greenday – Marc Spitz
- The Anthology of Rap – Adam Bradley and Andrew Dubois (eds.)
- In One Person – John Irving
Of course, some of these will be abandoned, others will be traded out, and, I’m sure, many will be added!
