August 2009: What are you reading?

Filed in Gather Books Essential by on August 3, 2009 0 Comments

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 (when I have a full course load, play in the orchestra, work on the newspaper, and spend time with my friends), 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?
