Summer Reading

A couple of girls have posted a list of their intended summer reading on their blogs, and are encouraging others to do the same. Since I love books and lists, the idea highly appeals to me. I kind of doubt that I'll even get through half of them, and I know it's not as an aspiring list as some, but I think it's a list of all the books that I've been wanting to read for a long time, and haven't gotten up the nerve to read, or just have been putting off.

  1. Tell me what you think of The Giver -- it's been growing on me slowly for the last year and a half, and it's suddenly becoming one of my all time favorites.

    I find the pictures it draws and the ideas it suggest are really intresting...

    let me know what you thinl :) Maybe we can chat it up a bit after you're done?
