I’m in a summertime state of mind. Although I enjoy good books any time of the year, I’ve always looked at summer as a special time for reading. There’s something about sitting beneath a shade tree with a glass of lemonade and a sweet love story…or lounging about on the porch swing on a summer’s eve, turning pages, and sighing as another couple finds their “happily ever after”. Sometimes I even enjoy a bit of old-fashioned sun-bathing while I immerse myself in a good story.
I find that my reading preferences tend toward “lighter” books in the summer…nothing too deep, too ponderous, too thought-provoking. I’m in more of a mood for entertainment, quick reads, and stories that make me smile.
How about YOU? Do your reading habits change when summer rolls around? Do you read more? Less? Where are your favorite places to curl up with a good book? What’s on your summertime reading list this year?
