    I finally read the Kite Runner, so I want to read a Thousand Splendid Suns, and The Yiddish Policeman's Ball ( is that right? ). Anyone read them?

    Re: What's on your summer reading list?

    The first two you mentioned are on my book list. I'm not sure when I'll get to them since my book list is always longer than necessary. Ha ha... I just finished Auriel Rising by Elizabeth Redfern. It's a great read if anyone needs another short one before the summer is over.

    I am finally getting to start the last Harry Potter book. I won't get past chapter two until my first break at work tomorrow. I'll be gushing once I finish and finally get to catch up with everyone in the book seven thread. Don't worry, it'll only take me this weekend to finish.

    Re: What's on your summer reading list?

    I have an ambitious summer reading list that I'm reading all at once, depending on my mood:

    Ulysses by James Joyce (I swear I will finish it this time!) - I'm reading this on my breaks and lunch at work

    Roasting in Hell's Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay - I usually read this after dinner

    Singular Existence by ? (I can't remember off hand, it's a book about single people and relationships or lack thereof)

    Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows - Bedtime reading

    This spring I bought nearly every Michael Connelly book and nearly every Caroline Graham book. I've finished the Connelly's, including a couple that I got from the library, and am now taking a break with a few other library books that became available at the same time (Anne Cleeves, Jonathan Kellerman, someone else I can't remember right now). Once they're done, I'll be delving into the Grahams, which should last me until early autumn, at which point the next round of library books I've put on hold should be coming down the pike.

    For school I'm reading Fahrenheit 451, which I enjoy, although sometimes it confuses me (the futuristic stuff), and I also have to read Ender's Game , which I look at as an easy, mindless read. I'm not really into Sci Fi.

    For my own personal summer reading, I'm reading East of Eden, whicch I am enjoying alot.

    I have read all of Michael Connoly's books and just finished reading The Overlook. Harry Bosch is one of my favorite literary characters. I also just read Gone by Jonathan Kellerman.

    My Summer reading list has been fairly light for the most part as I've been ill and needed light reading material. So I read all the Miss Julia books by Ann B. Ross and I re-read the first 3 books of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

    I started the summer reading the massive biography of Harry S. Truman by McCullom (of 1776 and John Adams fame). I was engrossed, but after that, I did fall back into what I call "non-thinking, total entertainment books". I also read the latest Shopaholic book this summer. And I'm ready to crack open Janet Evanovich's Lucky 13 tonight.

    Oh and I had the must read of the summer tucked in there: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

    I have probably done more reading this summer than anything else. I've averaged 3-4 books per week. But again, when I don't feel good, that's all I want to do is read. I haven't wanted to watch tv or even be on the computer much. My local librarian has finally gotten used to me checking out 10-12 books at a time. (my biggest fear is running out of reading material. I'd never be able to fall asleep at night without reading at least a few pages. I actually get ansty when I don't have a current book to read. I tell everyone they are my tranquilizers. )
