It is officially summer and that kicks off summer reading. I love to go light in the summer, the ‘beachier the better’. Of course, I already have far more books stacked up (see picture above) and on my Kindle than I can possibly read!
I am about to launch into Someone We Know by Shari Lapena. She is a Canadian author and I have loved her other books.
I continue to listen to Helene Tursten’s Detective Irene Huss books on audio. I am currently listening to Who Watcheth and only have one left in the series after that. I plan on moving my listening to Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad books (thanks MB). Keeping on the mystery theme, I am also thinking about Agent Running in the Field by John Le Carre. Have any of you read it? If so, please leave a comment.
While I love to read, part of me feels guilty about ‘just sitting there reading’ when there are other things that need doing. While I was working, I primarily read when I was away from home on vacation. That worked because my vast ‘to do’ list wasn’t staring me in the face. That ‘guilt’ has carried over into retirement.
Then I came across this quote:
‘Nothing took precedence over reading; it was considered the holiest activity a person could engage in’
That inspired me to put guilt in my rearview mirror and I am off to read!
Note: I have no financial relationship with any of the links posted other than buying the books. I try to link to Powell’s City of Books in Portland, an independent bookseller, whenever possible.
