I love to read! Really, it is an addiction. I must have a book at hand at all times! On my little mini vacation last week, I read a book by Mary Balogh, AT LAST COMES LOVE. It's a charming series about a family who, in the first book, suddenly finds out their brother has inherited a title, and as a result, they're whisked away from their country village and life of genteel poverty and dropped right in the middle of London's ton. Of course along the way, they find true love! The next book in my "to be read" pile? J.D Robb's SALVATION IN DEATH.
All this brings me around to my point...yes, there is a point! 8) Summer is a wonderful time to read! It's great lying around on a chaise, with the summer sun baking down on you, and being transported to a different time and place. Or taking your morning coffee outside, and as you sip away, forget about all the housework you should be doing, all the weeds you should be pulling, and that laundry that's piled up in the basket. (Curled up in a chair with a book during a thunderstorm is pretty okay too!! 8) ) Just to be able relax and read about my favorite character's latest adventures is a big de-stressor for me this time of year.
How about you? What are some of your favorite places/times to read during the summer? And what do you like to read? Romance? A rollicking adventure? Mystery? Fantasy? E-books, paperbacks, or hardcovers? (Personally, I like paperbacks...they're so easy to stick in my bag or purse.)
That's it for this week! Happy reading everyone, and I'll catch you next Thursday!!
