Remember the days of having a list of books your school required for summer reading? Well, Mom was the bookwormish nerd who liked that type of thing. Here's her summer bedside/back porch reading recs right now:
1. Out Stealing Horses by Per Peterson: Just finished on the back porch this weekend. An incredible book based in Norway, written by a Norwegian author extraordinaire and translated by Anne Born. Mom's cousin Amantha and her husband Nick gave her the book for Christmas this year and she counts it among the best gifts she could have received.
2. French Women for all Seasons by Mireille Guiliano: A light read for summer (and spring, winter and fall) suggestions in eating, drinking and being merry. This is the same author of French Women Don't Get Fat, which, in Mom's mind, is the best "diet" advice out there.
3. Once You Step in Elephant Manure, You're in the Circus Forever by Ed Grisamore: The nonfiction on the fictional-like life on Payne City local Durwood "Mr Doubletalk" Fincher written by Macon's own Gris. It even comes with a Durwood DVD - edited by our own Bright Blue. A local collaboration on one of the most colorful Central Georgians there is!
