Booking Through Thursday: Holiday Reading

It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so let’s keep today’s question simple – What are you reading? Anything special? Any particularly juicy summer reading? July 3, 2008

My answer: Since I have to work both Saturday and Sunday this holiday weekend, I’m not attempting anything heavy. I’m doing a re-read of Emma by Jane Austen, which is the July/August selection for the Jane Austen Book Group on The Book Club Forum. I’ve read it before, at least two times, but it’s been a while since it’s not my favorite Austen. However, I’m enjoying it a lot this time around. I’ve also got a couple of good books on my immediate TBR list:

Wicked by Gregory Maguire
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
The Stranger by Albert Camus
Possession by A.S. Byatt

I’ve got a lot of great books to look forward to!
