Summer Reading List 2013


It’s July already.  I am on a vacation of sorts that includes tutoring a high school freshman as he works through his summer reading.   This summer a lot of what I am reading will be for others.  However, I love reading so no matter.  The first on my list is PURELY for pleasure:

  1. The Black Count by Tom Reiss (as pictured above)
  2. Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell (finishing this from last summer)
  3. Rockaway by Tara Ison (hooray!)
  4. Learning from Lincoln (bet you can’t tell this is for work)
  5. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  6. John Adams by David McCullough (finish from last summer)
  7. The Martian Chronicles by Bradbury (re-read)
  8. My Notorious Gentleman by Gaelen Foley (Regency Romance)
  9. How Poetry Saved My Life by Amber Dawn
  10. Assorted poetry to feed my soul
  11. Assorted journal articles for work
  12. Food magazines
  13. ?

My lucky number is 13.  If you read this and have a suggestion for a good summer read, please do comment.  I will read just about any genre and/or style.
