It's a long, busy holiday weekend. Yet even when the days are jammed with activities, there are still bits of time to squeeze in some reading. As time allows, I'm going to start reading The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers and have Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan on deck.
The Yellow Birds was a finalist for the 2012 National Book Award for fiction, and Sweet Tooth is on many lists of the best books of the year.
All in all, a very merry situation.
