Remember how I said my Summer Reading List was prone to change? Well, good thing, because almost immediately after posting it (and delving into approximately three of those books), I added five more titles. What can I say? Kid:Candy Store, Emy:Books.
If that lollypop were a book, we'd be on the same wavelength.
Although replacing it with chocolate might have the same effect.
Andy also gave me an iPad for our wedding (amazing!), so of course I was obligated to finally check out the whole e-book revolution. (Conclusion: Accessibility is a major plus, but I'm still so in love with the sensory apects of reading an actual book - the texture and smell of pages, the weight shifting in my hands - that it's hard to settle for a less dimensional reading experience. Not to mention the the gloriousness of real-life, physical bookstores, may they rest in peace.)
Luckily I chose a winner for my first e-book: Tina Fey's Bossypants. Purchased in a matter of seconds, read in a day.
My digital library also now includes the following:
Read it in three days. I know, I'm a couple years late.
It was still fascinating.
In the middle of this one as we speak.
Saving this for the plane ride. Maybe. I think.
While I was back in Chicago, a friend also loaned me this:
It's satisfying to have a summer goal I can actually accomplish.
After finishing Fey's book, though, I realized I wanted to do more than just share the titles/covers of what I'm reading for once. And so the idea for my first-ever blog series was born: The Book Report.
It is as it sounds: When I finish one of the books on my list, I'll do a mini-review with rating. Simple. (Funny how something I hated doing in school becomes pleasurable when there's no longer a grade attached.) Hope you'll check back soon!
