Hel-l-o-o-o! from way back when . . .
I took an unexpected and UNWanted vacation for six weeks—sorry, didn’t mean to drop you like a hot potato–
But I’m sort of ‘back’ and must get the two of
us together about our summer reading plan. Ha, say you, WHAT summer reading plan. Oh, surely you jest. We’ll get something down in black and white right now this morning.
I just finished reading The Clocks by Agatha Christie—I gallop to Christie for easy, comfy
reading in times of stress. Yes, I had read The Clocks before, and remembered much too much of it, but still—Christie is so good, one could read them over and over (and “one’ does!)
When I consider making a summer reading list, I go to my folder of “good reading” lists–yikes–do I still have all of THOSE unchecked? and then to the computer. Found an interesting site; “greatschools.org/101 books for college bound kids” Yikes! you mean I never
read THOSE either? If not now, when?
Back to earth. I’ve already decided to read Don Quixote this summer and have a fine new copy ready (if I can find it) and sort of have been thinking of reading my oldish copy of a
biography of Eleanor Roosevelt. No, not the new one sweeping the book news; The Firebrand and the First Lady,but my coypy of Eleanor Roosevelt byBlanche Wiesen Cook
published in 1992 which covers the years 1884 to 1933. That should satisfy me for a while!
And what about a bit of Shakespeare? The one, they say, to read –if only one–is Hamlet.
Shall we? Macbeth? A Midsummer Night’s DReam? Which? Any? Eyes glazing over?
Maybe that Archbishop title by Willa Cather and get that one off the charts. . .
And The Wives of Los Alamos by
Tara Shea Nesbitt which if book club selection for July ******
OK, here’s a bit of a list—————–
The Wives of Los Alamos
Death Comes for the Archbishop
A Midsummer Nighr’s Dream
I’ll be lucky if I finish Don Quixote and I know it!
REady? Get Set? Go! Tell me your own list—–
Oh, The Clocks by Agatha C? Threemystery button review!
