Sometimes the summer sneaks up on my and this has happened now. I am so busy I don't have as much reading time as I did last month! So, instead of listing my June favorites, I am going to post about what I *want* to read, and I really hope you all do the same thing. I want to know what you want to read - it'll inspire me to add books to the ol' pile, if you know what I mean.
Here's what I want to read this month:

Not only do I want to read this, I wish I had done this:
With a suitcase full of Jane Austen novels en español, Amy Elizabeth Smith set off on a yearlong Latin American adventure: a traveling book club with Jane. In six unique, unforgettable countries, she gathered book-loving new friends— taxi drivers and teachers, poets and politicians— to read Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice.
Whether sharing rooster beer with Guatemalans, joining the crowd at a Mexican boxing match, feeding a horde of tame iguanas with Ecuadorean children, or tangling with argumentative booksellers in Argentina, Amy came to learn what Austen knew all along: that we're not always speaking the same language— even when we're speaking the same language.
But with true Austen instinct, she could recognize when, unexpectedly, she'd found her own Señor Darcy.
All Roads Lead to Austen celebrates the best of what we love about books and revels in the pleasure of sharing a good book— with good friends.
