If our kids' room is any indication, then there's been a whole lotta readin' goin' on this summer! When the program ended yesterday, there had been thousands of books read! Congratulations!
I've read quite a bit myself this summer. Here are three of my favorites:
Rash, Ron. The Cove. [F RAS]
"Living deep within a cove in the Appalachians of North Carolina during World War I, Laurel Shelton finally finds the happiness she deserves in Walter, a mysterious stranger who is mute, but their love cannot protect them from a devastating secret."
Stedman, M. L. The Light Between Oceans. [F STE]
"A novel set on a remote Australian island, where a childless couple live quietly running a lighthouse, until a boat carrying a baby washes ashore."
Walter, Jess. Beautiful Ruins. [F WAL]
"Follows a young Italian innkeeper and his almost-love affair with a beautiful American starlet, which draws him into a glittering world filled with unforgettable characters."
I'm always interested in what other people are reading, and so, it seems, are quite a number of others. Just the other day, Goodreads announced it has 10 million users!
Visit the Underground New York Public Library website where you'll see photos of readers, and their books, taken in the subways of New York City. One of the great features of the site is that if you see a book that interests you, you can click on the "borrow" button and be connected to WorldCat. You don't have to live in N.Y.C.--WorldCat has 1.5 billion items, from libraries all over the world, in its database!
