Ahhhh! The sweet promise of summertime. The longer days and summer vacation offers us a little more space to help us change our pace and catch our breath. This summer, in lieu of your typical screen time, we encourage you to read a book.
June 21 marks the official kickoff of summer… and marks the kickoff of our summer reading extravaganza! So, pick your first-round book(s) and settle into your favorite spot – a chair out on your deck or patio, a bench at a local park or any comfortable spot by the pool, beach or lake – and then, “dive in” to one or all of the top notch books we’ll be sharing with you this summer.
Regardless of whether you feel pulled towards a compelling classic, a page-turning mystery, a light easy read or a growth minded work of nonfiction – or all of the above – we hope you will join us on this summertime reading adventure.
Here’s our first three books to kick off our summer reading list!
