Now, of course, I can't walk around with my nose in a book anymore, not least of all because I am always carrying something else--child, laundry, stray toys--or because I'd trip over something (child, laundry, stray toys) if I weren't paying attention. I do always have at least one book in progress, but it may take me weeks to finish it during stolen moments.
This summer, I'll be reading these for sure (they are book club picks) and probably squeeze in a few others as they pop up. (I just read Friday Night Knitting Club after my mom passed it on. Eh; but the funny part is the author succeeded me at a job once. My mom had no idea!)
- Song for Night, Chris Abani
- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, Sherman Alexie
- Peace Like a River, Leif Enger
