My Summer Reading List

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

My summer reading list has nothing to do with what's new and what's hot; it has entirely to do with what I own but haven't read yet. As I'm getting ready for another move (Nooooooo!) I'm trying to donate as many books as possible. (So far, that's like 12! But it's progress!) I'm also re-dedicating myself to reading the ones I'm keeping around (and packing in boxes, and carrying up and down steps, etc. etc. ugh).

Behold, my summer list, in collage form:

Summer Reading List

1. Cannery Row by John Steinbeck (I read this short Steinbeck book recently and enjoyed it!)

2. A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn

3. Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein

4.My Fair Lazy: One Reality Television Addict's Attempt to Discover If Not Being A Dumb Ass Is the New Black; Or, A Culture-Up Manifesto by Jen Lancaster (I've read many of her books but skipped this one!) 

5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (I have this one on my 101 in 1001 list since it's embarrassing I haven't read it as an English major!)

6. Diary by Chuck Palahniuk (My youngest sister lent me this one! I promise to read it, Janice!)

7. A Separate Peace by John Knowles

8. Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson (This one's borrowed and I need to return!)

9. The Jungle by Upton Sinclair

Have you read any of the above books? Would love to hear any recommendations to help me prioritize!
