Suffering from work-induced writer's block, so I thought I'd give an update on 25 before 25:

I'm almost done with Jane Eyre, and so far so good I'd say. It was hard to get into because I needed to look up every other word, but once you get into it, it's cool. So far, I'd recommend it, but I'm not blown away.

I think next I'll read The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. I'm starting with books I already own (but never read) before I venture off into the library or bookstore. Although! I have a $5 coupon for Borders I need to use and I'd like to own Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (I read it in h.s. and loved it, but I'd like to read it again). Perhaps I'll take a few minutes to walk over there on a sunny day and use my coupon. I'm actually supposed to be on a debt diet of sorts this month, but I'm allowed a couple of luxuries, so maybe I'll swap a Starbucks trip for a Borders one. =)

I'm actually curious, what's everyone else reading this summer?

I don't much like the beach, but I have so much to read that I'm actually contemplating a lazy beach trip so I can catch up on reading. (How back-asswards am I? I'm a total geek, I know.)

I love Jane Eyre! Sounds like you are trying to hit up the classics. Jane Austen can't be bea either. If you want a good, much more recent woman-focussed read, I really enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns. And if you have never read Sarah Waters, try her out! Start with fingersmith. As a literature prof, I am a total bookworm and reading gallons is my favorite part of summer!
