I had high hopes of getting my June read in regardless of our wedding but didn’t even get around to picking out a book before the big day. At our gift opening my dear friend Rands gave us a beautiful home made gift and then added in my favorite book East of Eden. I had given it to her to read and she returned it in the best possible way a loved book should be returned: creased cover, pages bent, thoroughly consumed. I took this book with us on our honeymoon to re-read for the third time and am still working my way through it.
During July I took a break to get in on all the hoopla surrounding Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman. I read this book mostly while traveling to Nashville. I loved reading it and still love the character Scout. Not sure what I think about all the questions of true author-ship and what not, but I enjoyed reading about Jean Louise and her “coming into adulthood” in her own way at 26. Definitely worth reading if you haven’t yet!
August’s book is TBD – any recommendations welcome!
