But, we love the summer reading program anyway. It's not about finding motivation to read, it's about spending time in that energetic buzz of rooms full of people who love to read. Especially rooms full of very young people who love to read and librarians who love to help them find the right books for them.
So, this summer, I thought I'd post each Monday about what NJ (age 7) and I (age 43) are reading.
I'm a multi-book reader. I keep books in different locations and read them when I am in that location
I also need to find time for two unpublished novels I'm reading for writing friends and Faulkner's Absalom!Absalom! for a library book club on classics. Good thing school is almost over and I can clear more time to read!
We may finally be done with Babymouse for a little while. This is the
NJ definitely loves graphic novels. She is both an artist and a reader, so this makes perfect sense to me. It's a lot of fun when we read them together and pick different characters to voice. She's even beginning to write a series herself. They are one page scenes called "Family Disasters."
Watch out. All three Bryant girls might be available in a bookstore near you before too long. In the meantime, I'm heading outside to read for a while.
