Summer Reads Update

Saturday, July 12, 2014 0 No tags Permalink



Since the last update, I’ve completed A Hundred Summers, which was just okay, and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which was excellent. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas could be read in a couple of hours and is a new way of looking at a specific topic. You should totally check it out.


In Progress

I started Cooked by Michael Pollan and it’s a slow read for me for some reason. I put it down to pick up some others in the meanwhile. I need to be in the right mood to read it, I guess. Next up is We Were Liars, added in progress.
