summer reading assignment

I'm going to be reading and writing about Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine throughout the summer at Just an Orange. It's an absolutely lovely book and I would be thrilled to pieces if some of you wanted to join me in a little summer book club.

The reading list is divided up for weekly reading, really quite non-demanding, and listed here.

The first section is for this week, but it will be quick to catch up. I posted generally about it this morning and tomorrow will write something about the first section.

Ray Bradbury is really a master storyteller and his use of language is light in the soul. If you think you could use some of that, you'll know where to find me.

P.S. The Introduction to the book is really worth reading, and I highly recommend it. So go on, get to the library or the bookstore (I think you'll want your own copy) and let's get going!


  1. I just bought it on sounds great! I can't wait to get started!

  2. Thanks for the challenge! I am in desperate need of a good book and some mind stretching. I'll be starting up soon- although I have already read a few pages off the internet. It seems really good so far.

  3. I really wish I could join - but it takes WEEKS for any books I order to arrive here in Istanbul - I'll look them up to see whether at least some are available as ebooks, though.

    This is actually very inspiring, can I steal your idea? :)

  4. My book arrived today....I will begin reading tomorrow!

  5. Zeynep! You should order it anyway. It's such a lovely read.

    Amy! glad you're joining in.

    And Connie! (too many exclamation points?) I'm glad your book is here.

    I'm excited to see what every one had to say.
