Summer Reading

graphic by Teach4Real

Remember being a kid and getting the dreaded Summer Reading list?  I think the thought that passed through my mind went something like this:  "I can't believe they expect us to read books over summer vacation!!!  Really?!? We're supposed to be on VACATION from school!" 

I think it's funny that now, as an adult, having summer vacation means that I get lots of time to READ!  I don't remember when the change happened, but I know I'm not the only one who went through this and now loves to read!  So, this is my summer reading list for this year:
If you're anything like me, you're always looking for something good to read next.  So, my question to you:  What books have you read and enjoyed this summer? What books are next on your "To Read" list?

  2. What did you think about the Stieg Larsson books? I liked them, but they are not my usual fare. What about the Janet Evanovich books? I stopped reading the Stephanie Plum books because they were all sounding the same, but when I do read them, I actually laugh out loud.

    1. The Stieg Larson books were good (once you got past the first 10 pages of the first book!). I've read the first 3 or 4 of the Stephanie Plum series, but at that time, she was coming out with #18 so I just stopped. If you like those, you'll like the flower shop mystery series by Kate Collins!
