I have two very expensive hobbies: wine drinking and book reading. I usually do both at the same time so the cost is double. Shockingly, the Husband is much more supportive of my reading than he is of my drinking, which is why he recently got me a Kindle. I still plan to buy hard copies of really good books I covet (because I like to hoard the written word), but the Kindle is definitely my go to for most titles.
Here are a few of my fav summer reads…some I’ve read multiple times (Summer Sisters), some are the best short stories written on earth (The Complete Fiction of Nella Larsen), and one literally changed my life (The Omnivore’s Dilemma). My recommendations are so much better than the New York Times so trust me and read these!
Summer Sisters, Judy Blume
The History of Love, Nicole Krauss
One Day, David Nicholls
The Complete Fiction of Nella Larsen
The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Michael Pollan
Blink, Malcolm Gladwell
Bossypants, Tina Fey
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
How Did You Get This Number, Sloane Crosley
