Lolly has designed a beautiful PDF of our annual summer reading list–please download and distribute as you will. I hasten to add that this is the good kind of s.r.l., one designed for pleasure reading, not to Improve you.
I’m currently shuttling between (among?) Anna Karenina, William Langewiesche’s The Outlaw Sea, and Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl (on audio). They’re all great and each a relief from the others. Gone Girl is driving me slightly crazy because it involves a fictional children’s book series that was allegedly wildly popular, but descriptions of and quotes from the “Amazing Amy” series make it sound like it would have been out of touch forty years ago, much less today. Maybe this will be explained in the end, because Flynn is an awfully cunning writer and otherwise sharply observant. What are YOU reading?
