    Recently we asked the kind folks who follow us on Twitter what book(s) they’re looking forward to reading this summer. Here are some of the responses.

    Deborah: 99 Stories of God,  Joy Williams

    Heather: This summer, it’ll be Amy Hempel’s Collected Works, Ben Marcus’ The Anchor Book, Confederacy of Dunces, and a few others.

    Kathryn: Crazy Rich Asians, by Kevin Kwan. It just sounds hilarious.

    Shirley: When Opposites Attack, by Jo Maeder

    Robyn: Opportunity, Montana, OF COURSE. Also The Little Friend and Living the Questions: The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity.

    Martha: Look Homeward, Angel and The Moviegoer.

    Daniel: Rereading Hero With A Thousand Faces this week, and will soon start reading the complete Sherlock Holmes books. And because I will be in Italy soon, I might read Italian Hours by Henry James.

    And add your own below! What book or books are you eager to get a jump on this summer?

    Life, by Keith Richards

    This was Keith’s first book and he won a Norman Mailer Prize for non-fiction. President Clinton presented the award to him.


    Pretty good for an old blues rocker.

    It’s not litra’chure, but it’s real, and it captures a period that interests me.

    J. Sommers

    You know what I won’t be reading? Red Moon.

    Justine Tal Goldberg

    I might pick up a Jim Shepard collection. I’ve been meaning to explore his stuff for a while now.

    Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
