What are you reading?

Summer time.... and what are you reading? 

It has become somewhat of a tradition to get together with fellow book lovers on the deck at BPYC to chat about some of our favourite reads of the season. It was a perfect evening, with boats coming in and out of the gap as the sun set and the lighthouse blinked on.

Annika  suggested we co-host a raclette party, and everyone brought treats. Sausage, shrimp, fresh veggies.... One of my favourites on the grill was scallops and asparagus. Sides were quiche and salad. Cheeses included gruyere, swiss, and different types of raclette. Everything delicious!

It was a real pleasure hearing about everyone's summer reading. I especially want to pick up the bilingual edition of Neruda's book of poetry, Ode to Common Things.

Here is the list of books with links to details.
