It's almost time to select a new novel. I have a long list of books to read, but nothing feels quite right at the moment. It's like having a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. I very specifically want a summer read, although I'm not exactly sure how to define such a thing. I feel I'll know if it is right as I read the first few pages. It will be a novel, not a book of short stories or poems, it will not discuss the lives of vampires, and the author will take me to a landscape with wide open spaces. All of that being said, my perfect summer read might not involve any of those things. It will just feel like summer, at least to me. But where to begin? Do you have any suggestions?
