Discussing reading material... and the nature of books

Posted at 9:58 AM on August 3, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

Break out the hammocks and the books. Or perhaps you'd prefer an electronic reader? Today's Question wonders if you would trade your books for an electronic version. No matter what the means, you'll still have to choose your material. MPR Digital Media intern Eliza Hartley writes about what is in her book queue and asks what you are reading:

I have something to admit to you all. I haven't quite finished The Sun Also Rises yet, though I've gotten further along! It's my goal to finish that during what is shaping up to be a lovely month of August, and to start Far from the Madding Crowd.

Between internships, dinners, movies, and just general time spent with friends before we all go our separate ways again, you'd think I'd have more time to read during the summer and not during the school year, but I find the opposite to be true. But enough of my excuses...I need to buckle down and finish that Hemingway! Lady Ashley is waiting for me...

So, how about giving me some inspiration? It's August - what are you reading?
