July 2015 Book Reminder

I know I say stuff like this a lot, but I truly can't believe we're heading into the second half of the year already. What happened to 2015? On the other hand, there has been so much going on this year that I can understand why the time feels like it's flying. Between house projects, birthdays and holidays, work and other things, I don't ever have as much down time as I feel like I used to.

But I'm happy to say that our book club mostly doesn't contribute to the "noise." I really do find it calming and beneficial to get lost in a book for even 15 minutes on most days before I dive back into what I was doing. 

At any rate, I hope everyone is keeping up with the pace this year. I'm about 3/4 of the way through Wuthering Heights, which is good since I'm still keeping to my two-books-a-month reading goal. (Sometimes I don't know how!)

The next book sounds like a good summer read -- if not a light read, then at least an adventure story. (Actually, my expectation is that it will be rather dark.)

The Road

Synopsis: A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.
