The summer reading list is always a hot topic (excuse the pun) this time of year. I've seen and heard features on the best picks for summer reading online, on the radio, in magazines, etc. I probably won't get around to reading anything other than my students' papers this summer. But one can dream!
I stared longingly at my bookshelf this week with all this talk of summer reading. I wondered what my choice of books says about me. You decide.
Two entire shelves of cookbooks, including everything Rachel Ray has written. I think this says "I like to eat."
An entire shelf of books about Florida, from back road guides to history. This says "My state is better than your state, waa haa."
Everything Alice Hoffman ever wrote. This says "I could turn out to be a stalker of this amazing writer."
Travel guides for Paris, Florence and Greece. This says "I used to travel to wonderful places, but now I have kids."
A non-fiction book "The Secret Life of Lobsters: How Fishermen and Scientists are Unraveling the Mysteries of our Favorite Crustacean" by Trevor Corson. Again "I like to eat."
You won't find any self-help books. This says "I'm beyond help."
What does your bookshelf say about you?
