Summer Reading #SOL18

Books

One of my favorite things about summer is having a lot more time to read. During the school year, I nod off in the evening after only 10-15 minutes of reading. On weekends, I feel conflicted about spending time curled up with a book when I know my “Honey-Do” list is a mile long.

During the summer, and Christmas and April vacation weeks, I go to bed early so I can rise with the sun and the birds and sink my teeth into a good book — after I’ve written my Morning Pages, of course!

I still have 18 days of school left, and my books are piling up. I better get cracking!

What’s on your summer reading list? I hope you’ll share!

  1. “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend” is at the top of my pile. Right now I’m reading King’s new book “The Outsider” and I thought Broken Wheel would be a good one to follow up with.

  2. What a terrific book list! I also love summer reading. During the school year, I really concentrate on reading books that I can immediately share or book talk with my students, so it’s all children’s and YA lit. In the summer, I’ve got rangier reading interests.
