So I have to be the very last person in the universe who is going on a summer vacation, and I am not actually leaving until the evening of September 6th. This isn’t going to be a beach vacation, nor is it planned to be the least bit restful, but there will be at least three very long flights and some potentially long airport layovers—I sincerely hope they aren’t too long.
I have been so busy all summer reading proposals, signing up new projects and getting material ready for the fall, that I haven’t had a second to consider what I might read for pleasure on this trip. So, I thought for my last blog entry of the summer, I would ask our readers what they would recommend.
First some parameters: I spend a great deal of my work time reading nonfiction and so, though there is some which has been published in the last year that I would love to read, I don’t want to do that on this vacation. I am looking for fiction that will capture my attention and be totally absorbing; I am looking for good stories, memorable characters, and wonderful writing. Is that too much to ask?
So, if you have time in the next several days to send me your suggestions and why you are choosing these titles for me to read, I would be very, very grateful.
I look forward to hearing. Thank you in advance!
