To make a long story short, I LOVE to read. Both of my parents love to read, and I definitely inherited that from them. My mom is just like me and always has a book at arm's reach. She trades books with her sisters all the time, and I'm lucky enough to be able to read ones they recommend. So here's a little list of some of my favorite books that I've been reading this summer...
1) Dead In the Family - Charlaine Harris
2) The Boy In The Striped Pajamas - John Boyne
3) Catch-22 - Joseph Heller
And on a related note, talking about the sales... I also bought "Invictus" and a GREAT muffin/cake/cookie book! I made these strawberry jam and shortcake cookies for 4th of July and they were delicious. The biggest problem is that this book is definitely not American, and most of the measurements are in ounces, rather than cups and spoons, so it's a little tricky. And of course, there was the presence of an ingredient not carried in my local grocery store, but it all worked out!
