It's Tuesday, as in Literary Junkies Link-Up Tuesday! Here's my monthly bookwormish update:
I picked up a bunch of new books at the library yesterday for my Summer Reading Challenge: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper and a couple others I've been trying to sporadically work through.
2. Library or bookstore?
Well, you probably guessed it, but I'm a cheapo. But aside from being stingy, some of my fondest childhood memories took place at my local library. I think our public library system is a completely under-utilized service and they will always have my patronage!
3. What book(s) have you read and re-read several times?
I very rarely read books more than once (which is another reason why I love the library), so the only ones I can think of off the top of my head are the Harry Potter series and To Kill a Mockingbird.
4. What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?
Such a hard question to answer because I've been reading for as long as I can remember. Roald Dahl will always be one of my childhood favorites, though. I could read him over and over again.
5. Who’s your favorite author? Tell us so we can binge-read!
Obviously, Roald Dahl and JK Rowling have to make this list. But I also love Elizabeth Gilbert, Rainbow Rowell and I don't know if he counts, but Jim Gaffigan. His second book is coming out in a few months and I can't wait!

Do you have any summer read recommendations? I haven't been doing nearly as much reading as I'd like to so I need something good to get me back into the swing of things!
