Summer Reading

Do you find that you read more or less during the summer months?  I actually find that I read more in the summer because I simply use every opportunity I have to pull out a book and read.  Especially when I am traveling in the car (not while driving!), sitting on the patio or laying on the beach, and always, always before I fall asleep at night.

In addition to reading a couple of Kate Morton's books, I just finished reading a very interesting book called The Snow Child.

It is the story of a couple living in Alaska that find a young girl who seems to have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale.  I found it an easy read but mid-way through wondered if I should keep going as the story seemed to slow down a bit.  I am happy to say that I persevered and read it through to the end and I am so glad that I did!  I would highly recommend it and I would give it about an 8.0 out of 10.  It would make an awesome book club read as I would be interested in what others thought about the ending.

So what has been on your summer book shelf?  I found this list below that had a few titles that I have not read yet.  I might have to make a trip to the book store sometime soon :)

I hope you are filling your days with lots of great summer activities, including reading.  That is the beauty of a book.  It can go anywhere with you and keep you company at any time.
