Summer Reading


My favorite thing about school getting out was the Summer Reading List. I’m old enough so we received a mimeographed list, in purple, smudged.

I usually had every book on the list read by July 1.

That meant I could read whatever I wanted: mysteries like Nancy Drew, the Dana Girls, Vicki Barr, Beverly Gray, Judy Bolton and more. Childhood of Famous Americans books — especially all the girls.

The library was my favorite place, with the bookstore a close second.

Reading is often part of my job now, and I still love it. I still devour books weekly.

And, in good weather, I love sitting out on my deck and enjoying a good book. I’ve been reading Fiona Davis and Elizabeth Adler and Donna Andrews and  Hannu Rajaniemi this summer.

What are you reading?
