My Summer as a Bluestocking

What I wear when reading.

What I wear when reading.

One of the advantages of being a woman of leisure is the time spent with one’s nose in a book. I’ll never buy a Kindle or any other “book” device. There’s nothing like turning pages and not having to worry about batteries. This will be of interest to no one but here’s what I read over the summer:

  • Anne of Green Gables, LM Mongomery (Wonderful)
  • The Gift of Wings, Mary Rubio (Interesting)
  • Hadrian’s Wall & The Dakota Cipher, William Dietrich (Swashbuckling)
  • Glenn Beck’s Common Sense, Glenn Beck (Political)
  • Moon Tide, Dawn Clifton Tripp (Pretentious)
  • Death Comes for the Archbishop, Willa Cather (Luminous)
  • Exiles, Robert Hansen (Thoughtful)
  • Those Who Hunt the Night & Travelling with the Dead, Barbara Hambly (Gothic)
  • America’s Kitchen, Nancy Carlisle, Melinda Talbot Naserdinov, Jennifer Pustz (Educational)
  • A Green Journey & Dear James, Jon Hassler (Heartfelt)
  • Virtue of War, Steven Pressfield (Masculine)
  • The Singular Mark Twain, Fred Kaplan (Tedious)
  • Thornyhold, Mary Steward (Magical)

Currently I’m reading Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell and The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer, translated by Nevill Coghill.
