I was actually planning on reading the biography of George Washington first, but leafing through this book's pages, I realized a lot of it takes place in Philadelphia. I think it will be a neat experience to read about Philadelphia during colonial times while actually living there and being able to see some of the historical sights. Another interesting note is that HBO created a movie series based on this book and a lot of the movie was filmed in Colonial Williamsburg-- a place I visited often last summer and enjoyed very much. I'm planning to read the biography first and watch the series when I finish.
This is probably going to be some pretty heavy reading so I'm going to need to find some lighter and entertaining books to read this summer also. Here are some of the other books currently on my to read list:
1. The Book Thief
2. Breaking Dawn
3. My Sister’s Keeper
4. Three Cups of Tea
Has anyone read any good books lately I should add to my list?
