Many people make plans to do a lot of reading over the summer. They anticipate the opportunity to hang out with a good book, iced tea in-hand, and relax in their backyard. Or better yet, the beach vacation where you lounge in the sand with a can't-put-it-down thriller and a cooler full of your favorite beverage.
I am lucky to read the daily paper in the summer. With my kids out of school, I rarely get a moment's peace to sit down and really get into a good book. I have one that I started in early June. It's a pretty short book and I am just half-way through it! And it's a good book too! I just can't find the time to sit down and read unless I stay up way into the night and I just can't bring myself to do that. Sleep is too important to me.
I do have books I wish to get to. I just probably won't get to them until this fall, once the bright yellow school bus takes my children away once again (insert devilish grin).
So, here's what I am wishing to read, hopefully sooner rather than later. Post a comment and tell me what you are reading right now or perhaps what is on your reading wish list!
