David Sedaris does have a new book out, but it didn't get a very good review. It's called something like "When You Are Engulfed in Flames". I know I'm a bit late on this, but my book recommendations are Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver or The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Happy reading!

Thanks so much for the book tips! I think I have my summer reading all lined up from this post. I love bookstores and often think that at some point it would be fun to work at one. Jason, I have read Catcher in the Rye at least three times. Love it, although it's been awhile. Perhaps it's time for a fourth time..... Yesterday I was searching the store hoping that there was a new David Sedaris book that somehow I hadn't heard about. No such luck, that man needs to write a new one. It would make me so very happy.

In some circles, I might be labeled as a "quirky" guy with a "unique" sense of humor. That being said, I'm fairly certain that my favorite book of all time is Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Very funny, sometimes crude, but deep down, truly heartfelt and authentic (in my opinion). Here's a question: When people type "IMHO", does the "H" stand for honest or humble?? Just wondering...

Great post Heather :)

Animal Vegetable Miracle...you gotta read it! By Barbara Kingsolver.

Heather, love the antique books in these shots..I'm a collector of these. One of my favorite books of all time: "What I Know Now, Letters to My Younger Self" edited by Ellyn Spragins. Enjoy your down time!

books! my all time favorite is "beach music" by pat conroy...funny, dramatic, compelling...all in one. also, if you wants something super fluffy and not at all serious, try emily giffin's books. i'm in my summer, super fluffy mode right now, so i don't have any serious books to recommend. :) xo

I LOVE Eat, Pray, Love. So good. Anyway, for a quick read you should try Winterdance by Gary Paulsen. He's a children's book author who decided to give running the Iditarod a try. It is hilarious...especially the skunk scene!

How did you think of this setting? I love it!

Heather, I just read and LOVED "A Thousand Splendid Suns", and I read the two you mentioned earlier this year. I picked up this book and read straight through for 8 hours until I finished it.
