Book report: A room with a view

To me, summer reading is all about old favorites and a little romance. On Saturday last weekend, I settled in with my copy of A Room With a View. This book is perfect for a quiet summer weekend! Read about darling Lucy Honeychurch's Italian adventures and oh-so-handsome George Emerson. The characters in E.M. Forster's book are so incredibly vivid that you almost forget that it was first published nearly a hundred years ago.

I recently placed nine book requests through the library for my upcoming trips to Santa Cruz and Hayfork. Until these books arrive, I am re-reading Pride and Prejudice. I found an illustrated copy on my bookshelf that I hadn't read before. It's another summer classic!

What are you reading this summer? Let me know in the comments section!

I just finished the new biography of Julia Child, a great book!
Now its time to go back and re-read "Paris to the Moon", the story of an expat family in France, I read it before I came and after 1 year and now another year has gone by.

Both of those sound like great book suggestions. Time for a few more library requests!

BTW - Did you see my reply to your previous comment here?
