Well, my blogging while on vacation skills have left much to be desired this week. Sorry about that folks! We’re about to head to the beach to make the best of our last couple of days here; but, in the meantime, I’m popping in to share what’s on my Summer Reading List and a little about an in-real-life Book Club I’m hosting next month…
Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, Find Your Way Back to Health
On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters
Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most
I also have a handful of books I plan to read for “professional development” this summer; so, admittedly, this list is a bit ambitious. But, if not for reading, what are summers for? 😉
Anyone read any of these?!?
What’s on your summer reading list?

My book club did the Rosie Project last month!! We looooooved it!! I wish I could make a guest appearance at your real live book club, but I’ll settle for the online one on the 2nd!!
I just read the Rosie Project after reading about it on Erika’s blog && I really enjoyed it! I’m excited to participate in your online book club! I also read Eleanor && Park this winter, it’s a good one! :] Thanks for the reading suggestions, I’ve been looking for things to read and this is a good place to start.
I am always looking for summer reads and would love to join your online book club. Mind sharing your summer professional development reading? I have taught history for the past 10 years but am teaching English part time next year. So far all I have is Kelly Gallagher’s book (love him)!
Eleanor & Park will leave you with warm fuzzies and a lot of frustration! I really enjoyed it, though. I am loving the realistic fiction that’s been coming out that isn’t set in modern day… the late 80s/early 90s seems like such a rich time to be a teenager!
I tried to read The Rose Project, but I just couldn’t get into it. I have read some of the other books on your list though, This Is Where I Leave You was so good. Can’t wait for the movie to come out. I also am interested in Wheat Belly, but I’m afraid I’d read it and actually feel compelled to get rid of bread….what, no morning bagel? Ha!
I just copied your list and put a bunch of these on hold at the library! So thanks for sharing! I just finished “This is Where I leave you” – it was strange, but entertaining…I also couldn’t put it down and read it within 48 hours.
