I am making this post to ask for suggestions for my summer reading list. I think I will aim to read one 'fun' book a month, which shouldn't distract too much from my studies and still provide the necessary leisure time I require for my sanity. Here is my current list for May, June, July, August and September. If I am successful, perhaps this can continue through the academic year.
May: The Rebel Angels by Robertson Davies (almost finished); The Robber Bride (Margaret Atwood -- I am reading this book because another musicologist recommended it and I bought it from the music library for 10 cents).
June: The History of Love: A Novel (Nicole Krauss)
July: Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality (Donald Miller)
August: The Historian (Elizabeth Kostova)
September: Orlando: A Biography (Virginia Woolf)
