I could blame the heat - my area has had a really, really hot summer.
I could blame the fact that I have had a lot of visitors this summer. That has been really fun but kept me busy.
I could blame the fact that I usually go on vacation in the summer -- a key reading time for me -- and because of scheduling problems, I didn't go :(
I could blame the fact that I'm having a hard time finding a book that captures my attention.
Whatever the reason, I've been in a bit of a reading slump.
So .... help me out. Tell me the best book you've read recently. It doesn't have to be YA.
I will read, respond to, and seriously consider all suggestions!
