This summer's reading list, so far.

Holiday is finally here and I can’t wait to start my reading-frenzy. I have finished reading a novel a few days ago. It was Lola and the Boy Next Doorby Stephanie Perkins,a YA (Young Adult), something light and fun to read.  I enjoyed it very much and it was a good opening for my reading feast. I’m now on my way to finishing How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent Reading by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren, which is a pretty heavy one for me and takes up quite the effort. A good one though, I can assure you, a helpful guide for reading non-fiction.

Okay, so it’s probably not that much. But I like said, this is my list so far, only “so far”. Holiday’s just getting started.
