Summer Reading List

I love summer and the time it gives me to dive into so many books.  Putting together a list of books to read is always a fun game for me because I never know how many books I will get through or if any of them are actually worth reading.  Here is my list for Summer 2008:

Looking for a good summer read, I picked up Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman and was immediately enthralled by the life of this amazing woman.  Born into a life of privilege, Georgiana nonetheless faces losing everything she has due to gambling debts and an affair with a certain young man.  This book reads more like Gossip Girl than a biography and will hold your attention all the way through.  The book is being made into a movie out later this year, which will star Keira Knightley as the Duchess, and will be full of grand costumes and sumptuous sets.
