The world is so full of a number of things,

that I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
R.L. Stevenson

Thing One has just finished the first book in Terry Pratchett's Bromeliad trilogy, Truckers, and is starting the second one.
Thing Two is reading Pete and Fremont, and now I suppose he will want to run away and join the circus.
Mr. Logo recently finished Last of the Breed. He saw me rereading it and was suprised I was reading a book by Louis L'Amour. He knows that westerns aren't really my genre. He is typically more of a non-fiction reader, but we both really enjoyed this book. Our tastes in books don't overlap too much but since he liked Matter of Honor I knew he would like this one.
I just finished Talk, Talk.
I am loving the whole "It's summer!!" thing, how 'bout you?

I'm currently reading Youth in Revolt and laughing my butt off. My kids are reading a bunch too and really enjoying our summer together.

I'd definitely say that I am pro-summer

i'm loving not having to get up at the butt crack of dark but the lack of wheels on and off and getting 2 people ready for a 6 week absence has kinda cramped the rest of the relaxation.

I am enjoying summer as well even though we have been crazy busy since school let out. My middle child, Bethany, is reading a lot as always and I am trying to read any time I have a free five minutes.

Hope your summer continues to go good!

I think I'd love summer more if I were in a different state. :-)

I wish I could get my Things to read for enjoyment.

Please dont judge TC Boyle by Talk others go,that one was merely a brain fart.

Unfortunately my reading regime has fallen apart since "new job" has happened!
Glad your summer is good! :)

I love Robert Louis Stevenson, especially that verse :) I grew up with a lovely illustrated version of many of his poems and stories, and you just brought it all back full force with that line.

Since we're in perpetually-summery Singapore, some make-believe and subtle simulation would be required to float any extra summer feelin'. At the moment, this consists of borrowing thrillers from the library, The Lost Gospel by David Howard and The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry, which qualify as summer reading.
