Racing through my summer reading list

I have two weeks before classes start and I have read no books this summer! I used to be the biggest bookworm, I guess now I am a blogworm. But I intend to get through as many of these as possible in the next two weeks. My week on the Cape/Martha's Vineyard should help me make a dent.

In no particular order:

Above: recommended by friends and soon to be movie...How To Lose Friends and Alienate People
Answered Prayers, halfway through, so good, but can't seem to finish!
A classic that I borrowed from the library, Woman in White

Just treated myself to this with a 25% off Borders coupon: Runner's World: The Runner's Diet.
Finally broke down and bought What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. I keep reading it at Barnes and Nobles, so good! PS Way cheaper when you buy it at Again another treat, very long stressful week at work. :(

Dean, my hero, haha! I loved Ultramarathon Man, so I need to read this also of course.

If you are looking for some literary runspiration, I recommend Marathon Woman by Katherine Spitzer or Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnanzes or Marathoning for Mortals by John Bingham.

There are so many good ones out there, but those I can vouch for. I hear Running with Buffaloes is also stellar, and while I am at it, you can't beat this title: Anything for a T-Shirt Fred Lebow and the New York City Marathon, the World's Greatest Footrace by Fred Lebow.
I have a few more book recommendations on my about me post.
