Elizabeth at CvilleWords gave me the idea of creating a summer reading list. How could I resist? This is the list of the ten books that I will be tackling first this summer. They are in roughly the order that I will be reading them, but it is hard to predict exactly because I usually have a book book and an audio book in progress at the same time. I will likely get to a couple more before Labor Day, but these are the titles that are at the top of my TBR list: Hallam's War by Elisabeth Payne Rosen (a Civil War novel for which I have to write a review); Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (on my iPod and almost finished); Venusberg by Anthony Powell (because his Dance to the Music of Time is one of my all-time Top 10 favorites); Resistance Fighter by Jorgen Kieler (about the Danish resistance movement in WWII); Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (which I've been avoiding but the book club chose); The Seven Dials Mystery by Agatha Christie (which I have been carrying around in my car for emergencies); The Trial by Franz Kafka (I'm two-thirds of the way through the audio version and it is killing me); Abbeville by Jack Fuller (another for which I need to write a review); Wildfire by Nelson DeMille (as a treat for finishing The Trial); and My Uncle Oswald by Roald Dahl (so I can completely finish his Omnibus).
