Summer Reading

What are you reading this summer?

Right now I'm finishing the latest Eric Jerome Dickey novel, Pleasure... yea I don't just do academic profound literature lol. I also read Pearl Cleage's latest novel,Seen it All and Done the Rest: A Novel. I love her work and I need to go back and reread some of her novels since they all usually connect.

Next on my list The Other Boleyn Girl and The Boleyn Inheritance. After that I plan to either start the Chronicles of Narnia series or His Dark Materials series. All of these are very different from my normal summer reading because I tend to gravitate towards African American authors and African American history. I'm trying to branch out more and make myself more marketable. I'm sure I'll read more than these in the next three months but those are the highest on my list.

Oh you should definitely check out Amy Dubois Barnett's "Get Yours! The Girlfriends' Guide to Having Everything You Ever Dreamed of and More." Yeah, the title is a mouthful but it's so true. That's exactly what it is.

how is the eric jerome dickey novel you reading? i've read a couple of his books and i really enjoyed them.. i wish i had the time to sit down and finish reading an entire book, but i've found myself starting on a new book and then it just sits there on the bathroom shelf for months. if you have any great book suggestions, please throw them my way! :)
