My Summer Reading List
Even though it is now early October, I always like to share the books that I read over the summer holidays. One of the many benefits from working in academia is having the majority of my time during the summer as dedicated "me time" where I am free to read what I want when I want to. No classes or lectures to prepare. This past summer I was fortunate in not having any books to read for student reading lists or for classroom lectures.
This meant that I almost overdosed on books this past summer. Not that I'm complaining but in many instances I was entirely too engrossed in my reading to stop and move on to other tasks or responsibilities. I was twice late meeting Aaron, my husband, for dinner because I simply lost track of the time. He didn't divorce me but he did let me know that he wasn't pleased with my tardiness! Aaron likes to read also but his work schedule, unlike mine, isn't summer free. This summer, he re-read James Earl Hardy's entire series of six novels.
I did most of my reading or as much as possible while outside and totally bare. One of my favorite reading spots is riverside along a stretch of water that is both secluded and very bare-friendly and popular with gay men. Inside our condominium, naturally, I was as nude as the moment of my birth!
Surprisingly, almost all of the books that I read this past summer were not gay-themed or had any connection to being nude. Aside from my two E. Lynn Harris re-reads with my friend, Jay, only one contained a gay sub-plot. This was highly unusual for me.
