RevGals Friday Five: Summer Reading – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jun 272008
 

Singing Owl said: Back in the day, before I went to seminary, I worked in the Children’s Room at the Public Library, and every year we geared up for Summer Reading. Children would come in and record the books read over the summer, and the season included numerous special and celebratory events. As a lifelong book lover and enthusiastic summer reader, I find I still accumulate a pile of books for the summer.

This week, then, a Summer Reading Friday Five.

1) Do you think of summer as a particularly good season for reading? Why or why not?

Yes, I think it’s because I was in school for so long, and summer was when I could read whatever I want.

2) Have you ever fallen asleep reading on the beach?

No, but I’m willing to give it a try.

3) Can you recall a favorite childhood book read in the summertime?

Anything by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

4) Do you have a favorite genre for light or relaxing reading?

Urban fantasy. Last weekend I read Jim Butcher’s White Night (The Dresden Files, Book 9) and Francis Clark’s Waking Brigid. I stayed up until 3:00 in the morning reading, and read both books in two days. I love doing that! Although it doesn’t happen as often as it used to. But there’s nothing better than being curled up in bed lost in a book as the wee hours tick tock by.

5) What is the next book on your reading list?

A book my friend Jen wrote. I’m eagerly awaiting for her to finish the second draft.

I swiped the picture from Singing Owl. πŸ™‚

  1. Love to read in the middle of the night, too, though my spouse prefers no lights on and I must find another locale!

  2. I read into the night too, sometimes it seems that time must wait! Great play πŸ™‚

  3. My best friend in junior high, who is still a dear friend, loved the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, too. I never could get into them though.

  4. Thank you Songbird, Sally, and Jan for stopping by. Books are just one of the most wonderful things in the world as far as I am concerned. I am certainly not the only RevGal who feels that way. πŸ™‚
