Whoosh! My calendar is packed. And June is almost gone! There’s the old saying, “Bad luck comes in threes” but I’ve decided that “Busy-ness comes in fives!” So this week we’ll take things five-at-a-time. Tell me:

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
The Invisible Girls: A Memoir by Sarah Thebarge
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan

3. Five places you want to visit:
4. Five people you’d invite for tea/coffee/beer and pizza: (I’m assuming this is a fantasy dead-or-alive thing)

Angelina Jolie (we’re actually already best friends, she just doesn’t know it yet)
Jason Bateman – huge, huge crush since his Little House on the Prairie days. He’s just gotten better.
Wendy Davis – she’s kind of a rock star after her big stunt in the TX legislature this week
5. FIve chores or tasks you’d gladly give to someone else:
Taking out the garbage
BONUS: A five ingredient recipe! (This is harder than it sounds!)
My favorite summer salad:
