I’ve been reading all summer, one book after another, taking the recommendations of strangers and suggestions from publishers. Yesterday I picked up ten ‘holds’ from the library and once home, going through the stack was like opening a box of chocolates. It’s the trade off for not writing a single creative word for months, I guess. My top three books that come to mind from the last 12 weeks: “Three Things About Elsie,” “The Woman in the Library,” “Grave Reservations.” I’m always on the hunt for the perfect combination of story and style. What about you? Do you have a couple of books you read this summer that you really enjoyed?
