kindle reading list summer 2012



During the season I don’t get as much reading done as I’d like. But during the summer, especially when away at festivals where the day-to-day demands of home life are largely absent, I can really get my reading on. Here’s what awaiting me on my Kindle this summer:

UPDATE: I’ll cross off the selections as I finish reading them.


  • Evil Dark – Justin Gustainis
  • Evil Ways – Justin Gustainis
  • Cryptonomicon – Neal Stephenson
  • Death and the Maiden – Gerald Elias
  • Death and Transfiguration – Gerald Elias
  • Room – Emma Donoghue
  • The Marriage Plot – Jeffrey Eugenides
