Sunday Salon - Summer Reading

The Sunday  
Since a lot of people are putting up their summer reading lists or where they plan on doing their summer reading, I thought I might as well, especially since summer decided to arrive this year and completely skip spring for some reason.

I don't know what it is about the summer, but I find it the easiest time of year to get a lot of reading done.  Whether it be the good weather, the amount of time that one likely will have, or just the fact that its brighter, I much more easier to get my reading done during the summer months. It may also have to do with the fact that one is more likely to be in a  good mood to do some reading and to do a lot of it for stretches at a time.  I find that I am more likely to be in a good mood in order to do reading, versus the winter months, where I feel like reading is more of a chore than anything and that I have to force myself to get any reading done.  Its not that I don't read during the fall and the winter, I do, but I just feel that I am more likely to do some serious reading during the summer months. And by serious reading, I mean reading that is done with a purpose and an intent and an enjoyment.  What do you think?


I also find summer one of my favorite seasons to read, but I find that I tend to select lighter reads, as my mind wanders a bit reading outdoors a lot.
Summer makes me thing of beaches, so what better place to read? I do have some summer books coming in the mail, like Heat Wave, by Nancy Thayer and Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts....

Summer is my favorite time to read. It's mainly because I am not in a rush. That's lovely for reading.

I think reading is easier for me in the summer because there is more daylight and not much is on TV. It's sad, but true.

Here is my Sunday Salon
