What I'm Reading

Over at "The Four Horsemen," my friend Nick has a great post entitled What are you reading on your summer vacation?

Apparently, this summer President Bush is reading Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky, Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar" by Edvard Radzinsky and "The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History" by John M. Barry. (I love salt on my food, by the by).

At the end of his post, Nick asks "So what are you reading on your summer vacation?" So, I thought I would answer:

First, I am constantly reading historical romances. I have no idea how many I've read this summer, so I won't list those. You would be bored (if not already).

Secondly, a list of books I have read that are not historical romances:


  • the other five Harry Potter books again (I'm at the end of book 5)






And books I want to read this summer include:




  • the rest of Horatio Hornblower series, various Georgette Heyers, and many more historical romances
So, what are you reading this summer?
