Browsing through Books: Summer Reads
(I started out to blog about books and ended up on food. How does that happen?) Anyway I am gathering up my summer reads so I will have a good stock of books beside me on the deck, at the beach, and on the bedside table. My picks: The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger (a period novel is a must-have!), The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner (a kind of travel book, involving the search for happiness - for some reason, I love to read travel books when I'm on holiday - and I do love vicarious epiphanies!), The Tenth Muse, My Life in Food by Judith Jones - a memoir (about food, food-writing, Julia! - say no more) and Immunity to Change by Kegan and Lahey - (yes, this is a work-related book. I am heading to Harvard for a coaching conference in September and have signed up for a workshop with the author: Very Excited and Want to Be Prepared.)
I'd love to hear what you are reading this summer! Sign up with a google account and follow my blog and we can share book recommendations. Book club starts again the fall!
