Today I was listening to NPR’s Book Podcast for June 24th and the topic was “Summer Books That Make The Critic’s Cut” and the host wrapped things up with an interesting yet curious (to me) phrase.
She said, “It’s summer – a great excuse to read whatever and whenever you want.”
Well I thought that anytime was a “great excuse to read whatever and whenever you want”, especially as an adult who isn’t in school and therefore, doesn’t have homework. The only time I’m reading something that wasn’t picked by me is when I have to read something for book club, but my rule for my book club is if you aren’t feeling it, the book isn’t grabbing you and you just can’t get through it, than by all means don’t read it. There are too many books out there to get hung up by just one!
What are your thoughts out there in The Sunday Salon? You! Over on that fabulous red velvet chaise! Or you! Laying in the hammock off the deck! What does summer, or any season reading for that matter mean to you?
