i heart books

all genres.

i'd read the back of a cereal box if I had to, but thankfully there are these amazing things called books.

i'm jealous of all of you who actually have time right now to read laid back books. enjoy them for me.

in august, here's my starter list of books I want to read, in no particular order, just some I'm waiting for... I am leaning towards starting with the ones I don't have to think as much about while reading, but i'm also looking forward to the ones I get to think about too....


Brave New World
, Huxley.

Brave New World Revisited, Huxley.

Border Songs,
Jim Lynch

, Jean Korelitz

MUST FINISH History of Love, Krauss..This book is so beautifully written, I couldn't bear to finish it before I left Seattle, I'm saving it for when I get back.

A Place of Greater Safety
, Hilary Mantel

Without a Soul to Move
, William Dewey

, Tim Winton

Twenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth

The Children in Room E4
