Summer reading

I really enjoy traveling. Not just going to see new places, but the process of getting there. It is a special kind of down time. It also often means more bandwith attention for books.

We’re leaving in a few days for a week in Seattle, then shortly after that I’m off to Michigan for a wedding and some visiting. So I’ll have some solid travel time in between vacations. Here are a few I’ll be taking with me, and a couple more that have moving bookmarks this summer.

  • I’ve got the last issue of Monocle (it appears issue 5 hasn’t hit shelves in Burlington yet). This turned out to be a great read on my last adventure, and I’m really looking forward to it.
  • William Gibson’s Count Zero. I love the gritty feel of his other books. This should be some fun cyberpunk goodness.
  • The next (for me) installment of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series has been sitting in the queue for some time. I might pack it along this time.
  • Robert Bringhurst’s Elements of Typographic Style is a beautiful book and is turning out to be an absolute pleasure to read.

There are more, but that’s my short list. What are you reading this summer?
