    I teach, so summer gives me time to read a vaguely embarrassing number of books, hurrah!

    These were the best of the best:

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon - a quirky "murder mystery" told from the POV of an autistic boy. A really quick read, a unique narrative voice, and an interesting glimpse into the way autism can color your whole world.

    Fever Pitch, by Nick Hornby - I've owned this book for years, but only just got around to reading it because I'd heard it was very dry. But don't expect a standard novel and you'll do fine. Hornby uses specific games as jumping-off points for his essays, which makes perfect sense to me, as I mark time by seasons, too (don't you?) An incredibly relatable book for die-hard fans of anything about how silly we must look to the outside world and how deeply we feel every win, every loss, every trade, and every championship...oh, wait, I can't speak to that last one!butters:

    Of Sound Mind, by Jean Ferris - technically, a young adult (YA) novel, but I can enjoy those without shame on account of the teaching thing. About a boy whose parents and brother are deaf, so it's dealing with having to walk the line between the hearing/nonhearing worlds, and also your standard coming of age novel...plus some huge obstacles.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince...of course.

    and

    An Assembly Such As This: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman: Book 1, by Pamela Aidan - My one very girly pick, so bear with me. Amazon.com kept recommending it *constantly,* so I finally gave in and bought it. Well: this reads like Pride & Prejudice: Behind the Music. Makes my giddy-girly heart swoon. Best thing to happen to Brit-Lit since Colin Firth. (P.S. I've heard the 2nd book in the series blows.) Now, to toughen up for the hockey season!

    Great idea to have a book thread--I'll keep looking here for my next picks!

    I recently finished The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I can't recommend it highly enough. Easily one of the best novels I have ever read.

    Weapons of Choice by John Birmingham. If you like alternative history,( It goes 10 steps futher than the movie "The Final Countdown") this is a good read.
