Summer Reading


This has seriously been THE best summer of reading I’ve had in a long time. It’s not like I’ve read tons of books but the ones I’ve read have been so much fun to read. I’ve had the luxury of quiet evenings this summer too and I really, really needed them.

My routine:

  • Eat dinner
  • Hide

Yes. The Girl comes looking for me and finds me every time. I ask her to read with me but nope. School reading logs have really turned her off to reading which of course wrecks me in so many ways. Instead she does yoga while I read. Often right next to me. At least it’s a quiet activity.

Usually I try to read some heavier books in the summer but this summer I’ve had fun picking up whatever catches my eye. I so rarely do that!

Up next:

What are you reading right now? Has it been a summer of reading for you too?

My New Motto

Book Shelf.

I am in the middle of a great book. It’s the same book I was reading before the funeral and I’ve picked it up a few times to enjoy it but I can only read a few pages before my brain moves on to other topics. It’s unfortunate because this book is super good.

So, I am reading. Kind of. Not making much progress but that gap of time/space between books is expanding and making me nervous. Do you ever get nervous when taking too long to finish a book? I have so many great review copies to get to but at the same time I want to give my current book the focus it deserves. That means I am dipping in and out of it. I really don’t like to read this way though.

The read-a-thon is this weekend and I will be at a track meet. Again. Too much going on there to focus on a book but I sure wish I could join everyone this year.

What’s everyone reading? I want to see your stacks. That sounds dirty.
