As I’m daydreaming about summer and pretending that I’ll have more time to read, I thought I’d send out some of my all time favorite books in case others are looking forward to catching up on some reading as well.

In no particular order and a little something for everyone:

* The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell  51OxKDdApYL__SL75_ * Labor Day by Joyce Maynard     *The Miracle by Irving Wallace      *The Middle of the Night: Stories by Daniel Stolar (set largely in St. Louis)   *The Stand by Stephen King     *The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon     *Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon                      *The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff   *Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson (kid’s book but a great read)             *The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

Many libraries will permit you a “summer loan” on books which is great if you are doing any travelling. Also, check out my previous blog entitled A Novel Idea for great ideas on how to get books for free. Please send me some of your favorites for my summer reading as well.
