First, I really want to pair a reading of the recent Henry David Thoreau: A Life (Laura Dassow Walls) with a reread of Walden (which I LOATHED in high school but have a feeling I will appreciate much more now) and a first time through The Fledgling by Jane Langton. At 600+ pages, the biography could take most of the summer!
Then I want to reread Three Men in a Boat and first read Three Men on the Bummel for the Back to the Classics Challenge, paired with a reread of To Say Nothing of the Dog. This could very well also lead to a reread of Connie Willis' entire time travel series -- and that would take the rest of the summer!
Not to mention the summer reading shelf I created from my TBR ... Oh! And I also want to keep going with my Amelia Peabody rereads. I did the first one recently on audiobook and it was a lot of fun! Hopefully we don't have the intense, smoky wildfires up here in the Pacific Northwest that we had last year and I'll be able to sit outside with a book as often as I want.
What books are you planning on reading this summer?
