Summer Reading

All of the woman's magazines are including lists of hot books for hot weather. My reading tastes are quirky and I don't always enjoy these books. But I did just read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and loved it. I'm amazed the way she so realistically created the circus world of 1931. I especially liked the book because I'm just miles away from the Ringling Museum in Sarasota and feel nostaglic for the days of the big tents.

I also just read Debbie Macomber's new book, Twenty Wishes. Debbie was signing her books at Wegman's grocery store in Buffalo so my nephew bought me one. I'm amazed she can write three good books a year and still promote the way she does. It's both awesome and humbling.

What are you all reading?

Oh, I love Debbie Macomber! How lovely for you that your nephew is so thoughtful.

Last night I started reading Wild Hunt by Lori Devoti. It's a Silhouette nocturne and I'm hoping it scares me...just a little! *G*

Happy Wednesday!

It's been years but we used to take long weekends in Sarasota. Checked out the Ringling Museum once.

I wish I had time for reading:(
