Summertime, and the reading is easy
I've found it's a little dangerous to go to a store while I'm craving new reading material. It's much too easy to buy lots of books. That's not a bad thing (who can have too many books? not me), but it can play havoc with the credit card and the family budget.
I have a graduate class, independent and by correspondence, to complete within one year's time. No problem; I plan to finish most or all of it this summer. I also have software that teaches lipreading. This is a skill that may keep me teaching longer, even as my hearing loss progressively worsens. Both of these projects will take time.
But every summer I make a point of taking time to read for fun. Whether frivolous or serious, heavy or light, realistic or fantasy, I need to read. Amigo and I will make multiple trips to the library, I'll trade in stacks of books at the secondhand store, and yes, I'll make a few (too many, probably) trips to the chain bookstore and our local independent.
And lo! Behold! I made an order at Amazon two days ago. I had a gift card, so I used it. On their way here are Isabella Moon and Surreal South by Laura Benedict, Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella, and Sleeping with Ward Cleaver by Jenny Gardiner. My June supply awaits. Now I just need to stock up on coffees.... Stumble It!
