This will be the 3rd summer that I’ve made a Summer Reading List of books to read. It’s not an all-inclusive list, I always leave myself room to choose other books as well. This summer I’m leaving myself a lot of room to choose. I want to read a lot of books this summer, so I don’t want to limit myself by feeling like I have to stick to a list.
So I only chose four books for my list this year. They are classics, and they are books I’ve been meaning to read for quite a while.
I have from the start of Memorial Day weekend (Friday May 22) to the end of Labor Day (Monday September 7) to complete the goal. Here are the books:
Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour and Introduction by J. D. Salinger
The Annotated Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (notes by Alfred Appel, Jr.)
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein
I’m very happy with this list, and excited for these and all the other books waiting for me and the warm summer months to read them in. :)
What’s on your summer reading list?
