Currently reading "Home" by Marilynne Robinson. Want to then re-read "Gilead", also by her.
Also on my summer list:

The Omnivore's Dilemma

The Aeneid

Les Miserables. Have never read it and DH says it's the finest novel he's ever read.

The Buccaneers
Sanctuary
Both books by Edith Wharton that I have not read.

If I get through all those (unlikely now that I live and breathe chickens) I want to read the Purgatorio (Divine Comedy)

I don't have any "new" books to read.
I'll probably read the HP series again before the next movie comes out. (I can read all 7 books in 7 days.)
Books I would recommend:
The Red Tent; Anita Diamant (Awesome book)
Wildwood Dancing; Marillier (Well written, hard to put down)

I read a lot of Nonfiction. I own a huge number of books. I love reading. I think DH & I have all the Ayn Rand books - they're very good, but not for everyone.
Les Miserables is a good read... but long & it's kinda hard to put it down once you get started.
I have not read Basic American Government, but I don't think I want to. LOL!

Basic American Government is a *textbook* on how it works.
