Late Spring Reads & Book Recommendations Wanted

It has been in the high eighties here in the Northwest, for the last five days or so, and we are seriously soaking it up!  Nothing beats outdoor exercise after months and months of running on a treadmill!

Now that the weather has turned, it makes me want to throw a blanked out back and read under a tree.  I'm just about finished with The Book Thief, and craving another good book.  Something reminiscent, inspiring, uplifting.  You know--something perfect for this segue into summer!

During college, (ten years ago!) my professor recommended reading Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, during the month of May.  I think that's a recommendation that I should complete this year...

What are you reading?
Any recommendations?

Oh, The Book Thief is one of my favorite reads. I've got a stack of books on my night stand that I am trying to read before the library sends notice for them. I think I recommended "These is my Words" to you on good reads. That is still my recommendation. So good!

Pope Joan! It doesn't sound like an interesting title but I loved it! I might even read it again it has been so long :)

I haven't read Dandelion Wine. I think I should read it in May too.

I recommend anything by Barbara Kingsolver. I just started "The Lacuna" and I am loving it. Perfect warm weather books.

Several people have recommended "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamott...it's on my summer list.

Thanks for the great recommendations, all! I'm going to add them to my list!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
