Eye Candy: Summer Reading List – The Finale


So, this is how my Summer Reading List ends.

The Rest:

  • The Beast Time Forgot – Jim Harrison
  • Cannibals: Stories From The Edge Of The Pine Barrens – Jen Conley
  • Man From B.A.R. (short story) – Richard Ford
  • Golden Land (short story) – William Faulkner
  • They Only Hang You Once (short story) – Dashielle Hammett
  • A Man Called Spade (short story) – Dashielle Hammett
  • Westward Ho – Jim Harrison
  • The Bear – William Faulkner
  • Off To The Side (A Memoir) – Jim Harrison
  • Alvin’s Secret Code – Clifford Hicks
  • Cimarron Rose – James Lee Burke
  • Something on the American Civil War (vacation house read)

I read what I wanted to, didn’t get to some (yet), stopped reading a couple that I started and just couldn’t get into.

I realize, too, I really like the novella. Very underrated.

And it was fun to read Alvin’s Secret Code, one of my favorite books as a kid around 4th Grade. I bought it for Olivia to read on vacation. I don’t think she digs it unfortunately. I highly recommend it for if you know a kid in that age bracket. It’s a little dated, what with all the gizmos out there now, but still fun. Also fun to re-read this Hardy Boys book now.

These three are a still in progress. In a couple days, summer ends, and so does this reading list. Already compiling for the fall, of which I have a few in the hopper.

How about you – what did you read this summer that you liked? Put it in the list below.

(Speaking of reading, THIS contest is still going on. Get in on it.)

One thought on “Eye Candy: Summer Reading List – The Finale

  1. I thought I was the only one who, at age 50 read the Hardy Boys now and again as a kind of guilty pleasure. Every time I go home to visit my father in PA I grab one of my old ones of the shelf and read it.
