To Read / Summer


     Hi there! I set a summer goal to read at least five books, and so far it's going well! I've finished The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie, The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, and The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff. All three were excellent, and currently, I'm reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman and The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. 

      My interests vary when it comes to books, so if these picks seem like a strange melange of choices, they aren't. I just happen to like multiple kinds of books! American Gods is actually a new TV show, and I haven't checked it out yet, but if it's anything like the book, I'm sure it's good! The Secret Life of Plants is nonfiction, but abstract enough in ideology that some may not view it that way.  

       Plants have always had a connection to humans, since we've been around at least. We couldn't survive without them, and I think that's a relationship worth delving into! 

       Thanks for reading, and let me know what your favorite summer reads are! See you back here on Monday!

Other Readings


     Hey there! As a book lover, I always have an everlasting book list. Also, I have a lot of friends that love reading, and they like to share! This is the case for my book situation right now. At the moment, I have about 4 or 5 books that people have lent me. When this happens, I ignore my actual list, and read what I have on hand first. During this time, I don't let myself buy any new books, since the ones people have lent me are free. It's so hard to not buy new books! In the meantime though, I wanted to share what my stack of books to read looks like. I plan to read Goldfinch next, then probably will re-read my Blog Inc. book for a refresher. After that, it'll probably be Ada, or Ardor, and I'll finish up with Outlander (which my friend Cat is obsessed with)! I would share my whole book list, but that would take all day, seeing as there are consistently at least 50 books on it. Can't stop won't stop reading. Have a great Monday!
