The Summer Reading Challenge

I was wanting to get my summer reading list together, and Janie from Seasonal Soundings provided just the right motivation: The Summer Reading Challenge! Click on that link and join us, okay?

My list takes into consideration that I will be sitting in a lot of waiting rooms with Mom, spending a week on the Oregon coast, and staying home a bunch. I have come up with a good balance of serious and funny, new books and re-reads; the very act of compiling the list brings comfort and cheer for this summer where so much is unknown and frightening. Oh, I love books.
