You can always count on Caulfield to get something right about the current moment. This time around, it’s summer reading:
It’s like packing for a trip: I throw in way more books than I should. And then the one’s I do pack hardly ever get looked at. And even though it’s not “required” summer reading, there is always this sense of “need to.” Lately I’ve been on a “short book” kick, with most things clocking in under 200 pages. Right now that’s The Problem of Pain by CS Lewis and The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Thanks to a summer course I just signed up for, I get to wait a couple of weeks until I have to read a tome.
