Summer reads and listens

Stayed up until one reading Roz Chast's graphic memoir about MY LIFE. It sure seemed like my life caring for my dad. I chuckled, wheezed, and got teary.

Listened to Ann Patchett's State of Wonder on my new, longer commutes. Fits in well with my current curiosity about fungi. The audio book was very well read.

And for something light but intriguing, the reprint edition of Jean Echenoz' I'm Gone.

Now it's time for a classic, Sissy Spacek narrating To Kill a Mockingbird. Aren't libraries wonderful?

Yes, libraries ARE wonderful. I love your summer list.

Chast is a big favorite around these parts, though I haven't read any of the longer things she's done.

I'm Gone sounds good.

You remind me that I need to renew my library card this month...

Me too! I read the Roz Chast book and lived it. Read State of Wonder a while back. This week on vacation my list included Margaret Atwood's The Year of the Flood and Ruth Ozeki's A Tale for the Time Being. Both get thumbs up!
