Spring Reading

Besides wedding planning, running, and doing boot camp (did I mention that I lost 5 lbs in May!!) I have been reading.

My recommendations -
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Free ebook for my Kindle #15 from Project Gutenberg) by Arthur Conan Doyle - good book.

Independence Day by Richard Ford - 1996 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction - okay book
Bookends - Jane Green - great summer pool/beach reading.

The 8th Confession - James Patterson - Part of the Women's Murder Club, not as great as the Alex Cross books, but an easy fun read.

The Stone Diaries - Carol Shields - 1995 Pulitzer Prize in Fictions - excellent book!! Loved it.

Dear John - Nicholas Sparks
The Last Song - Nicholas Sparks - 2 girlfriends recommended these books - easy reads - make sure to have lots of kleenex with you!

My summer reading is going to include The Rabbit books (#2, 3, and 4 - Rabbit Redux, Rabbit is Rich, and Rabbit at Rest - #3 and 4 are Pulitzer Prize winners - did I mention that I am reading all the PP fiction books - slow but steady progress. I thought I would read #1 and 2 before reading 3 and 4 to know the characters. #1 was depressing and I didn't like it. #2 is very sexually and graphic and so far not great) and a few books about Frank Llyod Wright - a very interesting person.

If you need any book recommendations, I am your girl.
Have fun summer reading!
