Now that June is in full swing, I am hearing a lot of people talk about their summer reading goals. It seems quite common [at least according to my unscientific survey or library patrons, friends and family] for people to make summer reading resolutions.
My Dad (who is currently visiting here in Chicago) makes a summer reading goal every summer. In 2010 he did the entire Lord of the Rings, including The Hobbit. In 2011 it was a George R R Maritn read-a-thon, and this summer it is the Caro LBJ biographies.
For me, I have a small but important goal this summer. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of A Wrinkle in Time, I will be re-reading it alongside my about to turn 10 year old daughter as she reads it for the first time. We will also be discussing it while we read.
So what about you? Do you have a summer reading goal? Is it a number of books, a new genre to try, or something specific? Let us all know. Who knows you may inspire someone else with your plans.
