Since we’ve relaxed our expectations on the Classics Bookclub by hosting a new book only every other month (as well as adding some easier-to-read contemporary titles), we are filling that first Tuesday spot with a “comment carnival.” We’ll simply ask a question — and you answer in the comments. Easy enough, right?
Speaking of the bookclub, next month we will feature Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. Read the book on your own, then come back here on August 4, and join us in discussing it (in the comments, or via a post on your blog).
We have also decided to add in a contemporary pick for September 1: The Rooftops of Tehran. It’s linked to Jennifer’s review. It’s sort of last minute, but I hope that you’ll join us. It’s a paperback, so it’s not too expensive if you have to buy it.
So now for this month’s questions:
- Do your reading habits change in the summer? Do you read more, less, different types of books?
- What’s your favorite summer read?
Personally, I tend to read less in the summer. We’re busy with softball and tennis most nights, so I don’t have as much time to read. I used to gravitate toward lighter reading material during the summer, but that’s changed in recent years.
I can’t think of a summer read that stands out as my favorite, can you? I’m looking forward to your responses!
