What’s On Your Summer Reading List?

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote “There is creative reading as well as creative writing.” What’s on your must-read list this summer?

I’ve got a couple of different buckets for my summer reading. One is purely recreational. Like finishing the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy.  One is “stuff I was probably too young to understand the first time around.” Last summer I re-read several secondary school classics, including The Scarlet Letter, To Kill a Mockingbird and Pride and Prejudice (followed by–from the fun bucket–Death Comes to Pemberly, the P.D. James murder mystery using Jane Austin’s original characters and setting). The old novels have the added advantage of being very cheap downloads for my Kindle.

For this summer’s school reading list, and with a budding teen in the house, I’m thinking it’s time to re-read Catcher in the Rye. Plus maybe one of the Henry James classics, like The Golden Bowl.  Then I need a title or two for my third bucket, non-fiction.  I’m just finishing Sarah Vowell’s The Wordy Shipmates, which is the most fun you’ll ever have thinking about Puritans.  So I need something new in this category.

Post your suggestions and have a great summer!
