Happy Fourth of July!: What Is In Your Book Bag this Holiday Weekend?

In Ed's Perspective by Edward Nawotka

By Edward Nawotka

Monday is the 4th of July holiday here in the United States — a weekend for cookouts, fireworks, and if you’re lucky, reading. In the spirit of #FridayReads, we’d like to know what you plan to take with you for the long weekend? Do you spend your holiday’s buried in an easy mystery, a light romance, or a great classic (if you want that, I recommend you head over to Project D, where they are working through Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov)? Let us know what’s in your book bag.

Me, I’m debating between reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, which is coming out in August from Crown, revisiting¬†On Beauty by Zadie Smith — which is the book my men’s book club is reading this month, or digging into Karamazov over at Project D.

Too few days, too many books.

For some great suggestions, see the new consumer/reader-oriented newsletter from Shelf Awareness edited by #FridayRead’s own Bethanne Patrick.
