Is anyone planning on doing some summer reading? I am, although I have no idea what I want to read. (Give me suggestions in the comments, please!) I love to read every time of year, but I think we book geeks can agree that there is something special about this season. It’s cool to be reading along when everyone is getting excited about reading again. And since I somehow escaped mandatory summer reading in public school, I don’t have any negative associations with picking up a book on a hot day. (I do it inside in the A/C – Texas is too warm for outdoor summer reading!)
I love reading so much. Like many of you, I don’t read as much as I’d like, but when I do, I get completely absorbed in what I’m reading. I’m currently about halfway through an annotated copy of Emma by Jane Austen – a book that I still can’t believe I haven’t read yet. I love to read it at night after work or during a lazy weekend day. I’m especially into annotations because it means I can disconnect from the internet and just read… without having the urge to look anything up.
I don’t know if I have a favorite genre of book, but in general, I like classic or literary fiction. What about you? Take What Kind of Book Are You? and let me know what you get. And if you have any book or series recommendations for me, I’d love to hear them!
Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):
- What do you get on What Kind of Book Are You? Is it true for you?
- Are you planning on doing any summer reading? What are you looking forward to reading?
- Help! What book would you recommend for me to read? I like to read all sorts of things, and I’m kind of behind in picking things out this summer.
- Do you have a favorite reading spot? What’s it like?
