I wasn't going to make a reading list for the summer, but I changed my mind. I wanted to make 2010 my year of reading Flannery O'Connor and I have only read one (yes, ONE) short story and a very little bit of her biography. Summer is the time to make some progress on that plan.
I've also been reading blogs with the idea of adding in some new authors and new titles. It's going to be a great reading summer.
