Dear Friend,

Yes. You guessed right. I was that obnoxious kid in grammar school who lived for summer reading lists. I loved the trip to the bookstore to buy the whole list. I also frequently bought and read the books that were on the optional list (I lived for extra credit). I then counted down the days until school would start again so that I could be tested on the reading.

Since I haven't had an assigned list in a while and seeing as how my reading has taken a back seat to other activities (mainly Netflix), I figured setting a goal and listing some books would be a good start to get me back in reading shape. I've kept things realistic with just a handful of books - some new, some repeats, some that don't necessarily need to be finished. Some reading is better than none, right? My summer reading list includes:

  1. Thrive, by Arianna Huffington - to help strengthen my balancing act.
  2. Rules of Civility, by Amor Towles - for any beach time I find.
  3. Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen - for the umpteenth time. This book is my favorite.
  4. HTML & CSS, by Jon Duckett - to learn something new that will inevitably help out this blog.

How do you motivate yourself to read? What books do you have lined up for the summer?
