Dog Days of Summer

Frequent readers might have noted a little blog silence last week. Don’t worry, I didn’t melt in the heat; I was just on a bit of summer vacation and lacked pretty much all internet access. (Me: I have two bars! 3Gs! Wait…okay, no Gs. Carry on.) This also meant that my husband needed to deal with me trying to back for summer vacation reading. This was what I narrowed it down to before I tried lifting my bag:

Plus my e-reader. Walt assured me that I’d be okay if I left out a couple of hard copies. I ending up taking the e-reader, Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood (totally new read), Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (which I was about 200 pages into), and Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt  (a summer classic). I finished all of those, plus Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo, and started The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer. Hurray for summer reading! Throw some writing and swimming in there, and it was a pretty successful vacation.

Of course, vacation has to end sometime. So now I’m back and ready to dive into all the internet has to offer in literary goodness.

In exchange for silence on the blog last week, here’s a picture of a dog reading:

    My dog can read too. When I left the house he was poring over the newspaper. Sorry, some of these jokes are a reflex. Enjoying your blog whenever I visit.
