If you haven’t already realized by previous posts, I LOVE TO READ! There’s something about picking up a book and reading that is relaxing and invigorating all at the same time. More than likely, you are in a calm, relaxed position. Most of the time I am laying on my bed or lounge chair but love to read just about anywhere. I also take my book or Kindle with me to doctor appointments, hair appointments, definitely on the plane – basically anywhere there may be a window of time that I can read. I almost will the doctor to be a smidgen behind schedule so I can get in a chapter or two.
The invigorating part comes from the stories themselves. I open that book (or turn on the Kindle) and am transformed into another person for the time being. I imagine what the characters look like, how they speak, what their house is like. It’s all my imagination…and I love it!
Summertime is a perfect time to read (as are wintertime, fall, and spring). Grab a book and go to the beach for some sun (with sunscreen please!). Lay out a blanket in your backyard, on your patio or at a local park and get in some quality reading time. Here are my recommendations for your summertime reading, wherever it may take place. Click on the titles below for more information or to purchase them.
Eleanor and Park: a GREAT light read. Sweet kids, innocence and a twist.
