Hello Readers and Writers-
For those of you who, like me, live life dictated by the school year’s calendar, a summer break is in sight! I love teaching, but friends, I am looking forward to it.
Besides being a break from endless rounds of correcting papers and the morning scramble of getting my three children and myself out the door on time and reasonably well groomed, summer means time for READING!
The Read Along
My list of titles to read, both on my bookshelf and in my Kindle, is already long, but once I heard that Arti was hosting a reading challenge over on her blog, Ripple Effects, I had to check it out.
Some of you might remember that Arti’s last challenge inspired me to wade through George Elliot’s Middlemarch, which I very much enjoyed. (Here’s my post about it.) This year, the goal is to tackle another hefty tome: The Brothers Karamazov.
Confession: I received this book as a gift several years ago, and I haven’t read past the first page or two. It’s time to fix that!
If you’re interested in joying the read-along, it’s not too late! The challenge starts in May and lasts until July. (I’m planning to play some catch-up in June.) Here’s the link with the informational post.
If you’re looking for other books to read, say, some WWII fiction, and haven’t checked out my first novel, “Whom Shall I Fear?” yet, it is on sale today and tomorrow (Friday, May 6th and Saturday May 7th.) The Kindle edition is $.99 and the paperback is $9.99. As always, it is free on Kindle Unlimited.
I’m also looking forward to summer as a time for writing. I have my second novel, Where Shall I Flee? back from the editor, and am anticipating finishing and fixing and getting it off to the formatter and out into the world!
What about you? As summer approaches you have books that you’re just waiting to dive into?
