My plan is to spend Tuesday on a plane, leaving my folk’s home, going home to the other home. And then working like heck for two days before I leave for Vancouver to visit Kate in her new home.
In the meantime, I am conjuring up the Studio’s Annual Summer Reading List. I could use a little help.
My idea this year is re:read and re:new….books that are worth a second read, and new books that are waiting to be read. Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver and Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott are on my re:read list. Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan and Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman are on my re:new list (and of course, Steve has his own list). I used to have a staff of designers who would help me keep the list a little diversified. If I don’t get help, the list will be all about 1) women traveling alone seeking love, adventure and enlightenment (me), 2) baseball biographies (Steve).
Can you help a sister out? What book(s) do you adore so much you would read again (especially poolside or hammock reads) and what’s stacked up waiting for you and a cold one?
