So, fellow readers, how’s your summer reading going? Are you plowing through books or savoring them slowly? Are you reading chewy books (stolen expression from Kym) or are you keeping it light and easy? Are you taking on an author’s backlist or going for the latest and greatest from the best seller list?
Here’s the answer to all of those questions: IT DOESN’T MATTER!
The whole point of summer reading is to relax and just read. Whatever you feel like reading.
And that’s just what I’ve been doing. I read some very light books while on vacation and camping. I read what came up for me from Libby. And, I did a truly crazy thing . . . I stopped putting holds on anything else. Shocking, right? I have an ARC that I’m reading right now and then nothing on deck.
The freedom of that is amazing and I think it means I’m finally (finally) going to tackle Outlander #8, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood. I love this series but haven’t read one since 2018. I think that’s partly because I’ve gotten my fix from the television series but it’s also because these books are very (very) long and I always seem to have something from the library that I need to read first. I’m very excited and hope to start it this weekend.
Tell me, how is your summer reading shaping up?
