I love summer. Who doesn't, right? But I love summer for so many reasons. No bedtime, no alarm clock, warm weather, long days, relaxation in abundance. My list could go on and on. One of my favorite things about summer is that I actually have time to read. I have a long list of books that I have seen or heard about that I write down on my "To Be Read List." Now is about the time I start prioritizing them. Which one am I going to read first? Which ones am I going to buy and which ones am I going to go check out of the library? Which ones are good beach reads and which ones are going to require a little more thought? The planning has already begun!
We began 2016 at River Bluff High School by kicking off our 2016 Reading Challenge. I am excited about this Reading Challenge because it gives all of us an opportunity to choose things we want to read. Sometimes the choices are so overwhelming it helps to have some ideas for how to choose books. In my stack of "To Be Read" books are several that fit into these categories. It's my goal to have at least half of the Reading Challenge done by the time I get back to school in August. I hope you will join me! Let's fill up those posters in the Learning Commons with titles of books that we just couldn't put down. I can't wait to hear all about your summer reading life. Happy Summer and happy reading!
