Summer Reading List 2011

I love reading and always have a good book with me. I have noticed I read and buy more books during the summer months. Just this past week, four books arrived in the mail and it felt like Christmas in June.

Finding a place to read is important to me--at work I will sit outside on my breaks and at home I will read outside on a beautiful day or evening. It's a funny thing how books can make one act.

My 5 books for this Summer are:

~Comedy In A Minor Key by Hans Keilson
135 pp--A Dutch couple hides a Jewish man form the Nazi's--they soon understand how close they have become to their visitor.

~A Turn In The Road by Debbie Macombe
332pp--Three women will drive across country trying to forget the pass and learn the future can be good.


~My Reading Life by Pat Conroy
337pp--Mr Conroy shares with his readers how books have played an important role in his life--he also shares some private moments of his life with his readers.

~Miles To Go by Richard Paul Evans (part 2 of a 5 part series)
336pp-After the death of his wife and losing his home, Alan Christoffersen decides to walk from Washington to Florida. While on his walk he comes in contact with people who he never thought he would meet. Soon he understands the important role he will play in their lives and healing.

~What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
426pp--After hitting her head in a fall, Alice Love has no memory of the past 10 years of her life. She will soon learn how much her life is about to change--will it be good or bad?
