Summer Reading

Summer is off to a roaring start and I'm pretty proud of my spring/summer reading list so far. After basically a 4 year hiatus from reading anything longer than a Real Simple recipe, I've made my triumphant (albeit, temporary, until baby comes) return to my favorite hobby - reading! Since I quit my job in March, I've covered:

Eat, Pray, Love
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Water for Elephants
The Boelyn Inheritance
An Inconvenient Wife
The Tipping Point
Blink
The Vaccine Book
Parenting, Inc.

Plus some others that I have left off because I've either forgotten or they are so embarassingly idiotic that I don't want to admit I actually read them all the way through.

All of this while continuing to stay on top of my thrice-daily readings of my usual repertoire of Hop on Pop, Where the Wild Things Are, Berenstein Bears Go to the Doctor, Chicka-Chicka Boom Boom, and other preschoolian favorites. Are you impressed yet?

It is the last book (Parenting, Inc. not Chicka-Chicka Boom Boom) that inspired my post today on Atlanta Parent - check out the cross post since I'm off to start a new book instead of writing another blog post.

Happy Summer and happy reading to all! Keep me posted if you read anything you think I should add to my list!

Hey there, I'm an SV Mom - getting back to reading better books now as well. Have you read the Time Traveler's Wife, awesome book. I also loved the History of Love and The Bright Side of Disaster.
