Ahh, summertime reading! Is there anything sweeter than being truly indulgent with your book choices? For students, summer is a time when you can take a little break & read something light & mindless. One summer I read Jacqueline Susann’s Valley of the Dolls pool-side while on vacation in southern California. Sheer bliss! For those of us who don’t have assigned reading to distract us from our personal to-read pile, the sky’s the limit! What I like to do to coincide my summer reading stack with the season is to read a combination of the following genre of book:
2. The possibly scandalous autobiography/biography.
3. The indulgent paperback.
My to-read stack this summer includes George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice and Fire series & the following novels & memoirs.
Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
Just Kids by Patti Smith
Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis
