Summer Reading Fun
For the first time in a LONG time, it felt like summer this weekend. If you don’t live in the Northeast, you probably have had drier weather than we have. June was one of the wettest on record, with rain or thunderstorms coming most every day. Not exactly the kind of weather that has you dreaming of time outdoors.
However, this past Saturday and Sunday were blissfully dry and sunny. Not too hot, not too humid. Just perfect. And what better way to spend a day like that than finding a good book and curling up in a comfy chair out of doors. I didn’t get much time for that, having 2 young children and all, but I was curious about those who were planning on spending time reading – what were they reading? I asked my Twitter followers and Facebook friends and here are the responses I got:
Things I Want My Daughters to Know by Elizabeth Noble (noted as “not great”)
The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato
Rich Like Them by Ryan D’Agostino
For me, I’m finishing up This Lovely Life, and a review will follow here. Mr IT, as we know, is a great guy, but doesn’t read. IT Boy is still a fan of Dora the Explorer’s All Dressed Up book, but had it taken away from him this weekend because he keeps ripping the flaps. Soccer Girl was in the pool most of the weekend, but when she wasn’t, her nose was firmly ensconced in two books – Kingdom Keepers and Kingdom Keepers II. Oh boy, is she in love with this series. Almost cried when I told her the release date for Book #3 is almost a year away. Interesting to see her reading preferences develop.
What are YOU reading these days?
