Summer Reading 2011
Laura’s Blog Entry
Missing from the pile is The Girl Who Kicked a Hornet’s Nest. I hope to start that today on the iPad. The knitting and baking books are just for flipping through. There are also a few favorites I can’t wait to revisit – the Miss Read series, starting with Village School and The Cat Who… series starting with The Cat Who Could Read Backwards. Pure silly, brainless reading. Yay! That should balance out The Well Trained Mind, which frankly kind of scares me.
Got any books on your reading list this summer? I don’t expect to read all of these, but this is the stack that I plan to attack. I have already read two of them, so it’s off to a good start! The Forgotten Garden (Good!) and The Accidental Creative (Fantastic!) are already finished.
[If you want to read my review of The Accidental Creative, here’s a link to my thoughts.]
In tech news, I switched over to Goodreads for my book tracking. More friends there, and a better interface. That’s what it’s all about after all. Shelfari was pretty but not that functional. Too bad. Sigh. Next thing you know I’ll be on Google+ [Whoops… too late…]
Anyway, if you aren’t familiar with Goodreads, here’s a link.

It is a very handy place to keep track of books that I hear about. I was forever jotting them on pieces of paper and then forgetting about it. Now I have an ongoing list to remind me.
OK, time for a reading break and a glass of Blue Eyes iced tea. Bliss.
