Summer Reading List

1. As Simple As Snow by Gregory Galloway - This novel is one of my all-time favorites from high school. After spending three years with a friend of mine, it's back in my possession and begging to be read once again. It's one of those novels that doesn't have a traditional conclusion, but is still wonderful.

2. Life of Pi by Yann Martell - I read this in high school as well. I'm not sure why I'm focusing so much on the novels of high school, but this is one that deserves a re-read. Plus it will be available in motion picture this December. Though I'll be out of the country, I'll find a way to see it.

3. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - I've wanted to read this for years, but haven't gotten around to it..and none of my professors in school assigned it. How sad, right? But I guess now I get to read it and be excited about it, rather than having to analyze it.

4. The Reivers by Faulkner - This was a suggestion from a dear friend of mine. I'm hoping it's as good as his review. It is the last novel by Faulkner and it was awarded the Pulitzer in 1963.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Obviously I haven't thought very much on this list, but I do want to read for pleasure. I will have quite a bit of time to relax away from technology and such.
