Summer Reading

This is my tentative summer reading list:
  • Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby
  • Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse
  • The Masterpiece by Emile Zola
  • L'Assomoir by Emile Zola
  • The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera (already started this one)
  • Lighthousekeeping by Jeannette Winterson
  • The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
  • To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
Of course this list may change as the summer goes on. I started reading the Kundera novel on Wednesday. I'm enjoying this one immensely so far. I love Kundera's style of writing. This is the third Kundera novel I've read and I have to say he is becoming a favorite.

Truly a great list. Kundera is such an amazing author and reading his woeks always inspires me to read more of it.

I cannot wait for you to read To The Lighthouse. I read it earlier this year and it quickly has become a favourite.

For the most part, you don't believe in "light" summer reading do you? That is an impressive list.

I just finished Kundera's novel this morning. Absolutely beautiful. I think I may have to read another one soon.

Thomas, I seem to be having difficulty reading "light" novels for some reason lately.
