I updated my Books of 2012 page recently. Six months into the year and I have 21 books under my belt, not bad if you consider I am also raising 3 kids, managing a house and freelancing from home!
Next up on my list is The Great Gatsby, I’m embarrassed to admit I have never read it. One of my favorite directors (Baz Luhrmann) has just wrapped up a production of The Great Gatsby that is due out in theaters this December. I am a firm believer in reading the book before seeing a Hollywood adaptation of literature ( you know Hollywood, butchering good books since the early 1920′s!)
I also keep a list of books I would like to read in a board on pinterest, which you can follow here. Pinterest is also where I found this info-graphic with some great summer reading ideas (FYI, I have read twelve of the books they have recommended).
What are you reading this summer?
