I’m going to share my favorite summer reads with you in pictorial format. My girls have autism and pictures are a great way to show them a schedule of what we are doing for an “at a glance” understanding. Works for me too! Summertime reads can vary – I don’t have a particular genre I prefer come summer. To be honest, going to the beach with the girls is sheer hell, even though we live on the Connecticut coastline overlooking beautiful Long Island Sound. (I know you’re laughing Deb readers on more hospitable coastlines.) One heads east, one heads west and the other heads toward the water. I end up hopping up and down on the hot sand wondering which angel to save first! But one summer we rented a house with a in-ground pool (The Little Green House chapter in my book.) Lordy be what luxury to have a pool! We swam safely and at our leisure and had a blast. I even got some reading done! The photo on the left is in my book, and I’m reading Janet Evanovich’s 15th Steph Plum book. A great summer read.
But on the beach? There’s one thing that brings me straight back to childhood. My beach “must read”. I still buy several copies each summer. I read them and send them off to my sister in Texas. I’m into nostalgia and all things retro as you likely know. So here’s my gen-yoo-ine “it’s finally summer!” summer reading – and labels count!
Your turn – what makes summer “summer” for you? And are you a Veronica or a Betty?
