My Summer Reading List... and one more monogrammed item I didn't need...

I am so excited about my recent trip to Borders... I am tired of my workout music and I have decided to read while working out. Somehow I think it will be a little more fulfilling than Lady Gaga (no offense to Gaga...) I went a little overboard and bought quite a few for the summer! Heres hoping I have time to lay by the pool and read a few as well!


1. The Girl Who Chased the Moon
2. The Shadow of the Wind
3. The Sex Lives of Cannibals (Thanks to my sis Molly for the recommendation!)
4. The Devil in the White City
5. The Intellectual Devotional Biographies (Thanks to my mom for the rec!! This is more of a refresher course in world history and is kind a cool book to look through. Its a book of 1 page essays of notable people throughout history...From Henry VIII to Lizzie Borden. Will make a fabulous coffee table book when I have breezed through it)

Lets keep our fingers crossed that I will have time to relax this summer! 

also...

I received my Daninotes iphone cover in the mail this week...

Check her out if you haven't already:

Uhhh LOVE the phone cover. Adorable! Also, I have a question for you. Maybe I'm just a RUH-TARD but I simply cannot work out/run/whatev while reading. The words bounce up and down and give me a headache. haha. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I've always tried to figure out how people do that. Y'all are just talented :) Hope you love the books!

Okay, I have the same question as Molly! Seriously, how is it done? And you'll have to let us know how all the books are, I'm always looking for a new read!!! Super cute phone case! I love monograms. :)

The phone cover is beautiful! Thank you for introducing me to Daninotes! I look forward to hearing about the books! I'm always looking for new ones to read.

The Shadow of the Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafón) is a fabulous book! I really enjoyed it and I hope that you do too. Good choice!

I am really looking forward to starting The Shadow of the Wind! It synopsis sounded really interesting!

As far as working out while reading... I use the recumbent bike so its really steady. When I am on the elliptical trainer or the treadmill there is no way I can read! I have seen other people reading on them but I noticed that they are working out at a slower speed... so that might be why their heads dont bob so much that they can actually follow a book. I am right there with you... Maybe switch to the recumbent for your workouts? I love it and my abs have never been firmer! :)

I Adore biographies! I'm going to have to check out The Intellectual Devotional Biographies! sounds awesome

Pearls and Pears said...

Welcome!! Yes... It is fantastic. Really great if you are like me and need a refresher course in historical people and facts. Sometimes it feels as if i retained nothing from history classes in high school and college!

So glad you are following! I will let you know of any more great biographies I come across... I guess Andrew Morton has done one on William and Kate that is supposed to be good!

I just read Devil in the White City!! I read a lot..my blog has a tab for books if you want to add to your list:) I hope reading while working out works well for you! A great idea..two birds with one stone!
