What are you reading?

Posted at 5:18 PM on June 20, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Each month MPR's Marianne Combs hosts an online book discussion at mnreaders.gather.com. You can share what you're reading or just get ideas from others' answers, like these:

"'Mystery' by Dana Stabenow" - Linda G.

"So far, since the official start of summer, I've read: 'The Soul Thief,' by Charles Baxter and 'The Post Birthday World,' by Lionel Shriver. Right now, I'm almost finished with 'A Wolf at the Table,' by Augusten Burroughs. For the rest of the summer, I plan on reading 'When You Are Engulfed In Flames,' by David Sedaris (this guy makes me laugh out loud, he's hysterical), 'The Third Angel,' By Alice Hoffman, and 'John Adams,' by David McCullough." - tamara k.,

"I am currently reading 'Canterbury Tales,' by Geoffrey Chaucer and with a 'Bourne Identity,' by Robert Ludlum chaser. I just finished 'Scarlett,' by Alexandra Ripley and 'Texas,' By James Michener, which I started before sumer. 'Texas' took a long time for me to read but was definitely worth the effort." - Julie S.

Don't be shy, share what you're reading this month.
