Reading Rainbow

Who has summer reading ideas for me?

All through law school I've kept at least one "light" book going at a time. I learned early on in 1L that if I let Civ Pro be the last thing I read at night, I was going to have freaky, nightmarish dreams. So, I've always had something to help me purge the memory banks before bed.

Lately I've been tearing through the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child at the rate of about 1 every 2-3 days. I like them, but they're pure brain candy and starting to get a little predictable.

Last year, E. Spat turned me onto the Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi books by Robert Tanenbaum.

I re-read The Three Daughters of Madame Liang last month for the umpteenth time, and I'm a about 20 pages into my fourth or fifth re-read of Atlas Shrugged. (And I've been meaning to ask how Dagny feels about being played by Angelina Jolie in the movie.)

I'm looking for something fun. And light. And non political.


Anything by Connie Willis - especially Bellwether. If you like sci-fi at all, Nancy Kress "Beggars in Spain" is good. I read mostly sci-fi because it's so different from law school stuff.
The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is hilarious and an easy read. The first book is "One for the Money"
I just finished Interpreter of Maladies. It's short stories, so it's something you can read off and on. I'm not usually a short stories fan, but this book was really good.
