Summer Reading

It has been so nice to read for pleasure...no deadlines (other than library due dates!), no hurries, no worries.  I'm almost finished with the new Susan Isaacs book...As Husbands Go.  I love her books...one of my favorites from long ago is Compromising Positions...loved the movie by the same name with Susan Sarandon and Raul Julia, too.
The House at Royal Oak, by Carol Eron Rizzoli  is the true story of a couple who find a wonderful farm house and leave their careers to open a Bed & Breakfast.  It is a well-told tale and should be a must read for any of us who have ever dreamed of opening our own B&B.
Young Romantics by Daisy Hay, subtitled The Tangled Lives of English Poetry's Greatest Generation, is an engrossing tale of love, betrayal, sacrifice, and friendship. 
I've just started Anna Quindlen's latest novel Every Last One.  Her books are always thought provoking and hard to put down once begun. 

I've always kept a journal of books I've read, and lately I've tried to use Goodreads.com...I'm not very good at entering books on a timely basis though.

You know, I used to have a dream of opening a B&B, especially after seeing my mother's friend at work in hers. But my plans have long since changed. Still "The House at Royal Oak" looks very interesting.
