Today's question from Marie at The Boston Bibliophile:
Since we're past the Fourth of July and the summer season has officially started, what are your plans for the summer? Vacations, trips? Trips that involve reading? Reading plans? If you're going somewhere, do you do any reading to prepare? Do you read local literature as part of your trip? Have you thought about using the LT Local feature to help plan your book-buying?
Sadly, the summer is half over for us. The kids go back to school in the middle of August and so we are on the back end of summer. We've had a good summer so far, with our vacation to Capon Springs, been swimming a bunch, played sports, some camps and had fun together. We have a few things lined up for the rest of the summer. The kids are in our community's production of High School Musical this weekend. That will be very fun (and will be glad that rehearsals are over). The kids and I will be going with my family to some cabins in Mohican for a week. There's usually quite a bit of morning and 'hot afternoon' reading that goes on during those weeks. Nothing that takes reading ahead. Although my son will be playing football for the first time this fall so we got some basic football books yesterday at the library that we'll be reading together. For the rest of the summer, we hope to spend alot more time in the pool and with friends. Great question, Marie! Everyone - be sure to go check out what other folks are doing this summer - maybe you'll get inspired!
