When I resolved in January to read, I wasn't kidding!
The funny thing about reading is this: once you commit to read more, it becomes a bit of an addiction. I can't wait to finish a book so I can start the next one, and I find myself relishing quiet time to read.
And here's the even BETTER thing about reading: I'm watching my whole family hop on board the reading train, too. There is so much to be said for modeling a behavior you want to see in your children.
The list of suggestions for this summer include everything from classics to great beach reads, with a few powerful works of nonfiction thrown in, too. And yes, there are 26 books on this list - and I'm doing my best to read ALL OF THEM this summer! (It's good to have goals, right?)
Actually, I am going to be driving my oldest to and from her first job this summer - and I think I might be doing a lot of audiobooks and a lot of waiting and reading.
Here's to a WONDERFUL summer of reading!
Why Can't We Just Play? : What I Did When I Realized My Kids Were Way Too Busy (Put this on the TOP of your list -- I laughed out loud and could see myself in so many parts of this book!)
*Because we have been doing some driving this summer, our Audible subscription has come in quite handy. My husband and I took a trip to the beach for our anniversary and completed How Dante Can Save Your Life -- this is one of our all time favorite books.
(I just finished Persuasion - what a lovely Jane Austen book it is. Her last book, the title was actually assigned to it by Jane Austen's brother after her death. I think it's a GREAT place to start if you're hesitant to read the classics!)

I've been trying to vary what I read - sometimes it's just fun to pick up a book that doesn't make a profound statement and that isn't hard to read. Those are my beach reads, and I must say I'm hooked on Liane Moriarity! In fact, I read Big Little Lies in just one day at the beach recently!
