Summer Reading List



I'm off to the woods again this weekend to do a photoshoot with a few friends. Back on Monday, likely smelling like campfire. 


The last few weeks I've been queuing up a summer reading stack for forthcoming July travels -- Munich for the film festival, the Austrian Alps for a wedding, Berlin to see family and Paris is looking like it may squeeze itself in there as well. I am hoping for lots of reading time... 


Here's what I've got so far: 
Father Away: Essays, Jonathan Franzen
Salvage the Bones, Jesmyn Ward
Blue Nights, Joan Didion
Common as Air, Lewis Hyde
The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human
The Lifespan of a Fact, John D'Agata
Blankets, Craig Thompson
Imagined Communities, Benedict Arnold
Swamplandia, Karen Russell
When I Was a Child, I Read Books, Marilynne Robinson
A Hologram for the King, Dave Eggers (forthcoming) 


What else should I consider?
