Summer Reading Challenge

Books read for the Summer Reading Challenge:

1. Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler

"Are they going to let me just walk off with him? I don't know beans about babies! I don't have a license to do this. Ira and I are just amateurs.' I mean you're given all these lessons for unimportant things--piano-playing, typing. You're given years and years of lessons in how to balance equations, which Lord knows you will never have to do in normal life. But how about parenthood? Or marriage, either, come to think of it. Before you drive a car you need a state-approved course of instruction, but driving a car in nothing, nothing, compared to living day in and day out with a husband and raising up a new human being."
--Anne Tyler
My goal is 12 books so I have 11 more to go by August 31!
