I love being a wife and Mom. So Cali transplant, Brooklyn N.Y. Born and bred. In this body is a creative being. I scrapbook, cook, and I write. Imagine that. I love to read and just devour books. These are things that just free me.
I love the laziness of summer. Not being on a schedule, the longer days, the feeling of no rush to be anywhere or do anything. This makes for a perfect setting to read. Laying by the pool, or on the beach. Relaxing on the porch swing or rocker and just lolly gagging with your favorite book. I try to get to the library with the kids, get them some of their favorites so that their brains aren't turning to mush during the break, our library has little challenges with gift certificates to local restaurants or fast food places if they read a certain # of books. It's good to get the whole family to read.
That said, do you have a summer reading list together? Are there some books you're dying to get to and are looking forward to that vacation to bring them along on? I have a bunch, here are just a few of what I'd like to tackle this summer -
Now, reading 6 books in a month is about my average, so this should be a good start for some of June and part of July. I always wind up swapping books out as well, finding I might be in the mood for something completely different.
How about you? What is that special read you've just been dying to get to with an ice cold smoothie, or an iced coffee while the stars twinkle, or the salty breeze tickles your toes as you relax on the beach?
