Summer Reading

Summer is such a great time of year for reading! Vacations, beaches, pools, hammocks – all the new places to read books! I know lots of families whose kids do the summer reading programs at their local libraries – not mine. Alas, the only person who hates reading more than The Boy… is The Girl. I am not really feeling in a safe enough place to express the failure I feel as a parent that I have children who hate to read. That will have to be another post.

Let’s talk about a happier reading topic – SUMMER READING GUIDES! Modern Mrs Darcy Summer Reading Guide is one of my favorites. It is beautiful. It is com-pre-hen-sive, yet accessible because she organizes it by genre and has a “Minimalist Reading Guide” for those of us overwhelmed by the extraordinary number of great suggestions Anne Bogel gives.
