Posted on 06/17/2005 10:47:19 AM PDT by Tanniker Smith
The Free Republic Book Club is an informal gathering of readers and lovers of all genre of books, which meets on an irregular basis (whenever I remember to post and have a copy of the ping list available.)
If you would like to be on this ping list, please send me mail and I'll include you. If you wish to be removed, please send mail. If you already sent me mail wishing to be removed and you were pinged anyway, oops, my apologies, please request again (sorry about that).
Today's topic: what's on your summer reading list? Whether you are going on vacation, sitting on the beach or just hanging out on your front porch, there's usually a good novel nearby. Any particular plans or will it be a more serendipitous approach?
As for me, picking up a DVD of "The War of the Worlds" is giving me the desire to give Wells another go (I've never made it through any of his books). And while I'm at it, I going to try some Jules Verne.
Currently, I'm reading 3001: The Final Odyssey, a not-for-sale readers' proof edition that I won at a charity book raffle. (There are some other books in that pile waiting to be read. I just finished a 50th anniversary Peanuts collection.)
On the nonfiction front: I finished Mark Levin's book, Men in Black and I'' probably head for the library soon to reserve a few other conservative books.
What are you looking forward to? Discuss.

I read The Kite Runner and it was excellent. Not too political IMHO. I am now reading The Devil in the White City--true story that reads like fiction.
Took the Kite Runner and Middlesex to the beach house last week. Very engaging.
I just bought that myself. It's in the pile to read.
I'm reading "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" in anticipation of the movie coming out in December.
I laughed OUT LOUD all the way through it.
Techniques of Crime Scene Investigations 7th Edition and Criminal Interrogation and Confessions 4th Edition. Woo hoo!
I Finished reading Peter the Great a couple weeks ago, and now I am reading 1984, by George Orwell. Very wierd book. Next I am reading Monster by Frank Peretti.
I was thinking of picking up Zell Millers new book "A deficit of decency". What is it about exactly?
His first book (a national party no more) actually convinced me to stop voting Democrat. It just summed up all of the problems I had with "The Party" and its direction.
I am reading nothing but Free Republic this summer. I just completed my first year of nursing school (last day today!!), and it seemed like I had my nose in a book 24/7. Everyone have a great summer. I'm off to Florida tonight for a week.
have you read her bounty hunter series.....the newest one comes out this summer. I love her comedic writing and I laugh out loud while reading...
I'm reading Steinbeck's "Travels with Charley". It's awesome!
