I am NOT going to say that summer is winding down (let’s deny that for as long as we can). Nor am I going to say that fall is on the horizon. All I’m going to say is, here is a list of books. You may want to read some of them before checking out this fall’s newest shows.
Read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling which collects the comedy-writer-and-actress’s unempirical observations on life, romance, and fame.
Read 666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce, which seeks to answer the question, what do you do when your new mother in-law turns out to be a bonafide, evil, heartless, witch?
Read the original Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, which have aged splendidly, especially considering the diversly-skilled detective has been appearing in print for 125 years.
If you start now, you will be fully equipped to join in on the argument, that often arises, as to whether the book really was “soooo much better” than the screen adaptation. (I’m quoting myself there, BTW.) Enjoy!
