Last summer I curated a reading list and I absolutely loved my selections. I still recommend the books I read last summer.
Lately, I haven’t been reading much. Actually, I’ve been reading a lot, but I either start a book I never finish, or I read a book I don’t love. Here’s the problem. I work in a library. I’m surrounded by books every day!
Not much of a problem if you like to read, but I tend to get overwhelmed. So many books look good!!!
Instead of lugging piles upon piles of books home everyday, I keep thinking about my old reading list from last summer. I need another new and fresh reading list, something to check off after I read “The End”.
I don’t have tons of time for reading, and more often than not, when I read before bed, I end up sleeping in my book. That’s why I want a list. It’s a better use of my time.
And, because I work in the library, people are constantly asking me for recommendations. I need to be on top of my game!
That’s where you guys come in. I’d love for each of you to leave me a recommendation. I’d prefer to read new (ish) books. Thanks a bunch!
I’ll be sure to post my new reading list once I get it sorted out and maybe I can even get back to doing a brief review on each book.
So, here goes…what have you read been reading this summer?
If you have kids and want to encourage them to read, I wrote a little mini-series on Raising Readers. It may (or may not – I make no guarantees) be helpful.
