It’s read a book day!

It’s read a book day

What am I reading? I just finished two beautiful books. Lots to say about both books but not here, not now. I will say that they pack a pretty big emotional punch.

Foster by Claire Keegan
Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver

I’m also listening to two books– Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots and Tom Lake by Ann Patchett (which is wonderfully read by Meryl Streep). Thanks to Rob for the birthday gift of Hench and Cate for the Tom Lake recommendation.

Next up, it’s more by Claire Keegan and a book on writing for popular audiences that’s been recommended. Also, I was happy to get Emma Donoghue’s new novel as a birthday gift.

Learned by Heart by Emma Donoghue

So that’s my list. It’s kind of my last blast of summer reading before the pace of the university terms ramps up. Once mid-September hits, I’m still reading fiction but at nowhere near my summer pace.

Here on the blog we have some feminist fitness themed books to recommend, if you’re looking for blog-themed reading suggestions.

◙ Recently Cate reviewed Staying in the Game by Pamela Meyer. I’ve ordered it and I’m looking forward to hearing what she has to say about leadership and change.

Mary Reynolds reviewed Kathryn Bertine’s Stand: A Memoir on Activism, and Kathrine Switzer’s is Marathon Woman and some other books for the blog earlier this summer.

◙ I loved reading  Coffee First, Then the World: One Woman’s Record Breaking Pedal Around the Planet by Jenny Graham and I reviewed it for the blog here. It was gripping even though I have no personal interest in that kind of endurance riding.

◙ Catherine shared her summer reading list too.

How about you? What are you reading this summer?
