Would you believe the first topic was on books?
I am not committing to doing this for real every week, but it is a nice idea. So in the spirit of participating..the topic is:
…share with us the kind of summer reading you look forward to the most.
You’ve all heard me say that when I was in school, I reread Gone with the Wind every year. The last couple of summers, while on break from new degree program, I read some modern fiction epics: The Winds of War and The Thorn Birds.
This year, the summer reading I most anticipate is the doing more of it. I like to think that once the TV season is over, I will spend more time with my books. I have often commented that my To Be Read pile is a seven shelf bookcase. I just purged a pile from that bookcase to take it from “overflowing” to “full”. Then I picked up three more at Half Price Books.
I also buy books as souvenirs when I travel. I just read one from Seattle. I have two more from Seattle. At least three from New Orleans. One from Franklin, Tennessee.
I am going to go from “looking forward to” to “setting a goal”. This summer, I am going to take them all out. By Labor Day, I will have read all of the books purchased while travelling. This will include anything I pick up in Toronto.
And maybe I’ll think about doing some better writing, too.
