It's Monday! (6/8/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Well, that weekend went way too fast. We spent Saturday in the Twin Cities--Guitar Center for my husband and Half Price Books for me. I took in four boxes of books and got $35. They must pay a penny a pound or something.
Finished The Know-It-All yesterday. I was actually reading outside, keeping hubby company while he cleaned out the gutters. The book was as good as I remembered. And I'll have to tell you about the serendipitous thing that happened while I was reading it.

I'm continuing with Billy Collins's Horoscope for the Dead. So far, I've found three great poems in it.
I'm thoroughly enjoying Anne of Green Gables. I missed out on it as a child, so I'm listening to the audio now. I actually find myself getting kind of worked up on Anne's behalf. She can't go to the Sunday School picnic? No fair!
I'd planned to begin P.D. James's Death Comes to Pemberley this week, but when I read the first page, I thought: If I want to read something in the style of Jane Austen right now, why wouldn't I just read Jane Austen? So I tried Mansfield Park again and decided I needed something lighter. Since half of my June reading list is "in the mail," my only option was Girl in the Dark, a true story about a woman who seems unable to tolerate any light on her skin.

What are you reading this summer?
