Living with a reader is pretty cool. Cool because he can learn anything he wants and follow his interests wherever they lead. And cool because I get to read, too.
Anders and I pedaled down to the park last weekend (it’s also cool living with a two-wheeling phenom) for a reading picnic. Anders packed a bag of books. He claims there were 78, but I think it was closer to 12. I packed one book. We brought food and a blanket, then parked in the shade and read under the trees.
Here’s some of the books Anders is reading (I won’t list all 78):
I Am Learning All the Time by Rain Perry Fordyce
The Magical Garden of Claude Monet (Anholt’s Artists) by Laurence Anholt
(Thanks to my mom for sending those last two!)
I’m head-deep in Nevada Barr murder mysteries right now. It’s summer, I don’t want to think too much…and I love that her lead character is a park ranger. And her descriptions of the National Parks where the stories take place are great. And I like to try to figure out whodunnit, of course. The one I was reading on this day took place in a cave, so that’s a bonus.
Blind Descent (An Anna Pigeon Novel) by Nevada Barr
What are you reading this summer?
