    This summer, I re-read House of Sand and Fog – a terrific novel. Also, I “had” made it halfway through Daughter of Troy (by Sarah Franklin) before my puppy decided to take the last several chapters and eat them for a snack. I am paused on that story until I get another copy of the book! It was/is a terrific historical novel about a woman and her encounters with all of the famous people of the Battle of Troy.

  2. one of my favorite books this summer was “the kite runner”. it was absolutely astounding! I usually read science fiction but this novel was by far one of the best I’ve read in a long time. It is an objective and poignant account of a dying culture caught in the web of war and hate our unfortunate world society perpetuates…
    another fun “read” was stephen king’s newest offering “Leisey’s Story”. it was a bit rambling in parts (as king’s book often do) but overall, well worth the time. a very different departure from his usual genre.

  3. Ms. Pickart

    I love anything by Barbara Kingsolver, especially The Poisonwood Bible. I read Prodigal Summer this summer and learned so much about nature while enjoying the story.

  4. Nathan Cline

    I read a trilogy of books by Ted Dekker this summer. The names of the books are Black, Red, and White. These books really draw the reader in so that it is hard to put the book down and you can easily lose track of time while reading these books. These books are fairly short novels at 350 – 400 pages each, but they read very fast. Highly Recommended along with the rest of Ted Dekker’s books. My favorite so far is THR3E (three) which was made into a low budget movie (movie was not nearly as good as the book).

  5. Mrs. Dicks

    My favorite summer read was Tell No One by Harlan Coben. The suspense kept me hooked until the last page! I took it with me on our vacation to the beach and I couldn’t put it down.

    I also read a great book by Harlen Coben called The Innocent, so I recommend it to Mrs. Dicks. I loved Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; the first half is a little slow, but the second half is very exciting. A great guilty pleasure read was Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella–she is one of my favorite chick lit authors.

  7. Krista Ashe

    For the first time in a long time, I actually had time to read this summer! One of the first things I did was read the entire series of Anne of Green Gables books. I had read the first book many years ago, and I love watching the miniseries version.

    It was fantastic being taken back to a simpler time and the beautiful setting of Prince Edward Island. As a teacher, I loved reading about Anne’s exploits as a teacher in the early 20th century.

    I also enjoyed rereading The Davinci Code since I went to Paris this summer and did the Davinci Code tour. Dan Brown took a lot of poetic licsense in his descriptions of the landmarks of Paris.
