Summer Reading List

What’s better than having a lounge chair in the shade and a list of favorite books to read.

Some books have been in the waiting list for some time.

I do have a little too many lists, but I have my necessities. I only read books in their original language; I do not read a book that have been translated because I feel like I’m reading the translator not the author. I always get stuck on a word or sentence thinking how I would have translated it. I’m never quite happy with the job done.

Then I have the fiction and non-fiction lists. I like to read non-fiction in the morning and fiction in the evening. I sleep better with a novel next to my pillow.

Many of my books are on Kindle, so those are perfect to read on the move, but also at night with the lights off.

However, this is my summer list:

  1. B Russell – History of Western Phylisophy (I never really finish this book, but keep it on my night table to read again and again.)
  1. Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Coleman.
  1. 10 Things about Italian Economy by Alan Friedman (I must speed up with this one; things change too fast)
  1. Debt of Honor by Tom Clancy
  1. A Bocce Ferme by Marco Malvaldi
  1. Il Metodo Catalanotti by Andrea Camilleri (I read all his books).
  1. La Regola dell’Equilibrio by Gianrico Carofiglio. He is another one of my favorite Italian authors whose books are also translated into English
  1. Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
  1. The President is Missing by Bill Clinton and James Patterson. This is a must read if course. Curiosity is a good push.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
