Gearing up for summer reading. I have quite a stack of books begging for attention. These titles are high on the list.
I'm hoping to make it to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Canada, and catch Antony and Cleopatra. I don't know if Shakespeare qualifies as beach reading material, but nothing like a heavy dose of humanity while looking at the waves, right? There are other classics on the list as well, including Henrik Ibsen and Kurt Vonnegut. I'm also going to hit some favorite genres hard.NOS4A2 and Mr. Mercedes will give me my King family fill. I'd like to see if I can finally finish Lord of Chaos and Quicksilver--I've been working on both for a long time now! I'm getting close to being caught up with Robert Crais.
This will be a dynamic list--with additions and books that don't get read. Writing will take quite a bit of my time as I'll be finishing up revisions on the sequel to Ruin's Entrance and maybe, just maybe, the sequel to The Footnotes. And there's also the World Cup, a trip to Charleston, and other adventures as yet unknown. Can it be June yet?
