Summer Reading List 2010

Just cleaning up the bedroom before life gets incredibly busy and was looking through my "currently reading" book shelf. (It's level with my bed, where I like to sit and do most of my reading.)

This summer, I plucked a bunch of titles to either re-read, rifle through a little, start and get distracted by another interest or get totally absorbed in cover-to-cover:

Since summer is almost over, life is about to get insane and I've only got 1 and a half days left, I'm not going to feel guilty about lounging in the sunshine and reading my last peaceful hours away.
