Don't be shy

I plan on spending all summer sitting under a tree reading, any suggestions on what books I should read? I need lots of help!  Also Music suggestions, I love listening and reading.

Have you read Cats Cradle? Love love love Vonnegut. I'm also reading this book for english that is actually quite good. A Prayer For Owen Meany.
Those are the two books that come to mind right off the bat.
Summer is just around the corner!!

Jenna said...

Aww i wanna read too!
I think I'll read the Da Vinci code.

Annie said...

agree with adam, cat's cradle is terrific. pretty much all vonnegut books are the same, you could also try timequake, slaughterhouse-five, or bluebeard (my personal favorite).

also, i just read the virgin suicides and it's terrific. amazing wonderful. it's very similar to the bell jar, if you've read that... and if not then you should :)

Lolita is a really great and beautiful book in it´s own way, the secret garden is simply lovely ^__^

If you haven't read "Eat Pray Love" yet, it's a great lazy summer afternoon read.

Savvy Mode SG said...

i agree, i love to read.

Kathleen said...

Xiaolu Gou's "A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary For Lovers"!

no better way to spend the summer than reading while sunbathing :) i recommend malorie blackman's 'noughts and crosses' trilogy, its imcredible!

Patrick said...

Never let me go, Life of Pi, Extremely loud and incredibly close, middlesex, and the unbearable lightness of being.

Those are my top 5 favorite books.

Emmy said...

ahh sitting and reading all summer sounds absolutely divine. *sigh*

as far as book to read, i agree with Patrick on pretty much everything he said, particularly extremely loud which is simply unbelievable. i'd also add brave new world (because its a classic and it's AMAZING) and the alchemist which is a wonderful short but powerful read.
