With Memorial Day behind us, we have moved into summer. Okay, not officially, but Memorial Day is like the bridge that ushers us into the months of warm temperatures, the kids home from school, and the lazy days of reading begin. Yay!
My favorite memories of summer revolve around reading. As a child, I signed up for the summer reading program at the library. I checked out more books than I could carry, but I had a blast. Worlds I had never imagined opened up to me. Characters made impressions that stay with me even today. The life-long reader in me was hooked.
Later, in high school, I had required reading during the summer. As much as I loved reading, I didn’t necessarily enjoy the book list. I must admit, I like to pick out my own reading choices. Still, I learned a thing or two from the books and got good grades on my reports. When my daughters had required reading in school, I encouraged them to keep up with the book list, but still took them to the library or book store to select their own choices. I’m proud to say I have some well read and intelligent daughters!
As an adult, I still read frequently, but those long days of summer hold special memories. To this day, I love camping out at the beach, soaking up the sun, waves and words on the page of the book I’m reading.
With vacation time around the corner, I hope you get a chance to read some of the books you’ve been collecting. With the new Heartwarming titles available, you can escape into a world of romance for a few hours. As Heartwarming authors, we encourage you to take a peek at our books as they are being released in the upcoming months.
Enjoy! And let us know what you think.
