Now, I am really excited, I can just picture sitting in my house or outside with the wind or fan going and sipping on a cool drink and revisiting my old friends, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, and Louisa May Alcott. Maybe I will throw in some serious reading too, but summer isn't really a time for seriousness.
Not only am I going to read but I am going to explore. Why not? When did summer loose all it's fun? It's been a while since I have actually had some summer fun. Maybe it's because I don't get 2 months off from work during the summer ( although I am totally for that, if anyone out there is willing to start a the process to enact that into law). I figure, it's time to find that old time fashion summer fun again. You know what I mean, all the bbq's, days laying out by the pool, and visiting/seeing family and friends. I am getting all giddy just writing about it!
Here is my list so far, and let me stress, I will be adding more as summer nears, but feel free to suggest some of your favorites.
Wuthering Heights - Charlotte Bronte
Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Persuasion - Jane Austen
Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert
Vanity Fair - William Makepeace Thackery
Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys - Louisa May Alcott
