Okay, I admit it ... most of what I read is pretty fun and light. I just finished reading “Mary Poppins She Wrote: The Life of P.L. Travers” by Valerie Lawson. This biography was released in 2006 and I noticed it just recently because of the buzz surrounding a film coming out in December starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. It was an entertaining read.

Along those same lines, I mostly read fiction this summer … Dan Brown's “Inferno”; the debut thriller from A.S.A. Harrison, “The Silent Wife”; and my favorite, an advanced reader copy of Tim Federle's “Five, Six, Seven, Nate!” — the sequel to “Better Nate Than Ever” for young readers. If you want fun reading, teen lit is a great escape.
