Cybermage’s Summer Reading 2010

I work today and tomorrow before I go on five weeks of summer holiday. I am not really a weather person, who care if it rains or the sun shines, I am going to read anyway. This is my reading plan for the summer. I might read a few more books if I find anything interesting.
