Summer is my favorite time of year because it's the season of Summer Reading Programs! You can find reading programs at the library, at school, online and even bookstores! It's a great time of year. This weekend kicks off my summer reading marathon. I'll be posting all summer about the books I read.
Summer reading programs are just around the corner and are you ready to read? I have begun the search for books and tend to stack them all over my room, my desk, my car... It's always good to be prepared! The first reading adventure of the summer is the 48-Hour Reading Challenge sponsored by MotherReader. My weekend is cleared and I have set aside over 50 books to read. I am revisiting classics, rereading favorites and reviewing the new.
