My mind cries out for activity. My body, hampered by a severe case of poison ivy, balks. So I've turned to reading.
My favorite authors (Binchy, Trollope, Trigiani, Mayle, etc.) can't churn 'em out fast enough for me, so I googled to find writers who write in similar veins.
In the Peter Mayle vein, I discovered the two pictured here and finished another, The Reluctant Tuscan: How I Discovered My Inner Italian, by Phil Doran. All have been highly entertaining and have helped get my mind off my itching body as I "traveled" to Portugal, Italy and France.
For more serious reading, we've purchased our own copy of Radical, by David Platt. I'll be reading it after (or maybe alongside of) The Paris Wife by Paul McLain, which is about the love affair between Ernest Hemingway and his wife, Hadley.
What are YOU reading this summer?
