Summer Reading

My July 4th weekend consisted largely of reading and sleeping in the grass. How appropriate that I was reading this book.


I loved it. It’s been a long time since I got excited about a book, so I feel the need to spread the word. As you can see, it’s The Accidental by Ali Smith. It came out a few years ago.

While I’m talking of new favorite things, the best movie I saw recently was Please Give (not spectacular, but unexpectedly good), and in the music category I’ve been enjoying The National’s Boxer (admittedly late to this one too).

  1. This looks really good. Thanks for the suggestion. Also, this morning, the poem “I never saw a purple cow” is going through my head. I have the urge to knit one, so I thought I should come here for cow possibilities. :) Have a great day!

  2. I heard about this book from the Tournament of Books, which is one of my sources for new(ish) fiction. They’ve been doing the tournament every March since 2005, set up in a bracket like the NCAA March Madness. (
    Haven’t gotten to this one yet, but it’s on the list – glad to get another recommendation.
