So, as you know, I’ve been taking on some light summer reading such as What Is the What? Dave Eggers’ book about the conflict in southern Sudan and, currently, Blindness by the recently deceased José Saramago (what can I say? Death inspires me). Next on my list is another by Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (if I can tear it out of Mister MRP’s hands). Good beach reading, huh? Perhaps it’s just marginally better than plopping down on the sand with some of the stuff I read during the spring, such as McCarthy’s The Road. (Although I did take on the blockbuster Official Bookclub Selection by Kathy Griffin. Don’t hate.)
So I guess what I’m saying is, MRP needs help! What’s on your summer reading list? Is everyone going to be reading Eat, Pray, Love before the movie comes out, or have you already covered that?
