Top 5 Of New May Books For Those Who Still Are Obssessed With Reading


What are you reading this month? Or perhaps the question should be reshaped into the following: are you still reading at all when days grow longer, sun is brighter and wish to stay outdoors becomes stronger? No time for reading when open terraces invite for a glass of wine and a light afternoon chat with a friend or a sunny weekend lures to organize a gourmet barbecue with your closest meat lovers. But if you are a true book worm, you'll find a minute for reading even in between the floppings of a stake or a piece of cheese on a grill. Because the rising smoke and a rustle of pages are more than compatible. Because your desire to start a new book (even though you have just started another) beats everything else. And don't tell us that this never happens because it really does. And probably you'll have five more titles to dream about with our Top 5 of new May books:
