For whatever reason, I tend to read more during the summer months. This summer, I have decided to grab a bunch of books, keep them in plain view, and try to make my way through them before the warm weather departs.
I started by reading, The Soloist (a fantastic piece by Steve Lopez; read the book, skip the movie), and then I moved on to the yet-to-be-published, Dracula The Undead (it's coming out this October, read it, but just be prepared for an over the top page turner that will leave you breathless...however, it's no where near as compelling as Bram Stoker's classic...actually it's pretty silly, still though, I could not put it down).
Right now, I am half way thorough A Boardwalk Story (also coming out this fall), and so far, so good. It's a sweet story about a 15 year old coming of age in Atlantic City circa 1939 - for whatever reason, it reminds me of Stephen King's novella, The Body.
OK, I have to confess that the the unpublished novels I manage to get a hold of, are because Whatshisname works in the publishing field, so I often get to read books before the public gets them.
Oh, as for that copy of I am Legend. I wanted to re-read Matheson's classic, but kid-sister has requested it as something to read while she rests up.
So what are you reading?
