My August Reads

Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. With the exception of the word lazy, the phrase is particularly apt this year. The skies are hazy from nearby forest fires, and the tempo of my life is edging to the crazy side. That means reading time is at a premium, and whatever book I pick up must be compelling enough to hold my attention and keep me away from my out-of-control ‘to do’ list. Lucky for me there’s no shortage of great material. Here’s what I’m reading this month:

Before bed: Close Enough to Touch by Colleen Oakley

At the gym: A Version of the Truth by Jennifer Kaufman

Beside the pond: The One and Only by Emily Giffin

Books read to date in 2018: 54

  1. Bravo for hanging onto your reading, when you are so busy.

    I’ve just finished ‘The Girls of August’ by Anne Rivers Siddons.

    And I’m about to dip my toes into ‘Bossypants’ by Tina Fey.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jodie. I’ll look for ‘The Girls of August.’ Siddons is such a powerful storyteller. I read ‘Bossypants’ and laughed out loud in spots. Tina Fey can be hilarious!
