Every now and then, I come to a stalling point where I am staring at my bookshelf that is bursting with books and my dresser that is buckling under the weight of books, and wonder what should I read? As I thumb through my books, I realize there are books I own that I have yet to crack open and read. Do you have books like that on your bookshelf? I have quite a few, however, I'm not going to talk about all the books I haven't read yet. I want to discuss the books I did pick up this summer. These are a few books I actually read this summer.
I read a lot of books over the summers, partly because we participated in book-it summer reading as well as the local library reading program. Each had rewards for reading that just gave me an excuse to devour books like drinking water. Reading has always been a big part of my life, especially my childhood.
