Summer Reading 2018
Summer is coming to a close. That has me thinking about how summer isn't often thought of as the season for curling up with a blanket, good book and a cup of tea, it's the winter evenings that seem to get all the attention for cozy reading. This year I've made a commitment to get up earlier and read a little every morning, and every season.
Yes, it is cliche, but I have learned more about people, food, and history from reading than I have ever learned in a classroom.
Of course, most of these books on my nightstand still remain to be read and the truth is that I'm ok if I never catch up with my reading list. If my list is forever growing it means that I have a desire to learn and to grow. I hope that desire never dies and that my "books' to read" list is always growing.
Here's to learning, growing, and person who collects more books than they can read.
