It’s the first day of Summer!

Sing it, sister!
Right now, for me, the things that are slipping a little are: having long chats on the phone with girlfriends, taking long walks, and reading actual books (instead of emails and blogs).
However, I did pick up Bossypants, by Tina Fey, at the library, and am whipping right through it. That’s my litmus test, really, for a Favourite Book: if I can’t bear to put it down. If I stay up a little longer just to read it. If I read it while flossing my teeth.
Other books on this list have included:
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
- The Winter of our Disconnect by Susan Maushart
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Do tell: what have been your “can’t put it down” reads?
