Labor Day weekend... the end of "meteorological" summer. It's getting dark a little earlier and the evening air has a chill. I haven't seen any changing leaves here in southern CT, but it's certainly started in central New York. Where did the summer go?
We had several visits from our NYC daughters, caught up with old CT friends, explored the historic town of Essex, and (thanks to Henri) even spent a few days in NY with my parents. In spite of all that, I still managed to finish five books. BUT one was a play and one was an extended short story, so not very impressive on the reading front.
- The Street by Ann Petry - 4.5/5 stars, classic
- A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams - 3/5 stars, classic, play
- The Women of Brewster Place by Gloria Naylor - 4/5 stars, classic fiction
- We Are the Brennans by Tracey Lange - 4/5 stars, contemporary fiction
- The Sixth Wedding by Elin Hilderbrand -3/5 stars, expended short story
My favorite August book:
