This week's BTT topic:
It's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so let’s keep today's question simple–What are you reading? Anything special? Any particularly juicy summer reading?
Great. Simple is good – we're getting ready to leave any minute now, for a few days in the mountains. And knowing M's penchant for spending as much time as possible "on the trail," I assume I won't have all that much time for reading while we're there. Instead of books, my backpack will most likely contain massive amounts of bottled water, Band-Aids, Aspercreme, and Tylenol.
But there will be long evenings in the cabin or lodge. And I hardly ever leave home without at least one book. This time I'm taking two. One's a whodunit, Wish You Were Here, by Rita Mae Brown (one of the Mrs. Murphy mysteries). And the other is Summer Reading, by Hilma Wolitzer, which I intended to read last summer, but somehow never got around to.
As for the rest of the summer, I've got quite an impressive pile of books to choose from – including several ARCs that I feel obligated to read as quickly as possible, and a few more books for a couple of challenges I've signed up for. So I definitely have enough to keep me busy. Now if I can just avoid sliding down the mountainside or being eaten by a bear, I'm all set.
