Oprah's Summer Reading List and Ask the Authors

Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Partly cloudy, high 89 degrees. It was lovely at 6 a.m. this morning. The sun was out; birds were singing; the dew on the grass made my weed pulling not so bad.

Summer is a special time to enjoy birdsong and work in the garden, but it's also a great time to catch up on reading. If you're looking for a good read, check out Oprah has published her reading list for 2009--books that you can't put down.

Another special feature you'll find there is "Ask the Authors" This week's author is Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin McCann has been a finalist for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and was the inaugural winner of the Ireland Fund of Monaco Literary Award in Memory of Princess Grace. He has been named one of Esquire’s "Best and Brightest," He's been a contributor to The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Paris Review.

You can also submit a question for the featured author, and your question might appear on the website.

Looks like I need to make a list and head for the library.
