whatcha readin?

cozy
A few "what to read this summer" posts have shown up in my bloglovin' feed (mind you I've not actually read any of the posts...let alone the books) and its got me thinking about wrapping up my current book, The Fountainhead, and diving into another. I just don't know which one yet! I'll take a look at what the blogosphere recommends, but what I really want to know is what my friends are reading!

I tend to stick to the classics, with a few current ones thrown into the mix. (if The Hunger Games trilogy and Bossypants count as current...no, you say?). I got a Kindle from Justin a few years ago and I do really like it (not going to engage in a Kindle vs. paper book thing right now, nice try) I've found that most classic-type books are free from the Kindle Store, cool huh? So I went through a period where I devoured some of those, my most favorite being Sherlock Holmes. Though the classics were balanced out by a fair amount of re-reading Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child (desperation and sleep-deprivation have a way of combining and rendering your memory kaputsky).

I'm really enjoying The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. I've slowed down a bit on reading it, but only because I have the tendency to want to finish 'just this next chapter' and next thing you know its 4am. True story. It happened with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and again with The Hunger Games and I was about to repeat with Fountainhead, but told myself to back slowly away from the book. Once I have my next book selection all lined up, then I'll go back and give in to the binge-read. 

Disney really set the bar high for library expectations, amirught?!


And that's where you come in! Whats on your nightstand, or in your beach bag, or downloaded to your Kindle/Nook? I'd love to hear about all genres, though I tend to stay away from books where I know I'll cry (or ugly cry, lets be honest) or be so consumed by the sadness of it all that I can no longer function. 

til the paper cuts,
Em


ps. I just could not get the up-do to work for me. After cursing like a longshoreman and teasing (sorry, back-combing) my hair into oblivion, I just twisted it into a low bun and started shoving in squiggly-side-down bobby pins. And you know what? It worked. Fake it til you make it shall be my new hair-related mantra.
