Ever since I was little I have stocked up on stacks of books during the summer. Before road trips my family always raided the public library of their literary booty. Paperback chapter books for me, picture books for the younger sisters, and books on tape/cd for when the sibling rivalry on long trips to FL took a vicious turn. There were three of us girls. In a minivan. For up to 8 hours. Oh, and when I hit adolescence, watch out. I was too cool for car bingo and punch buggy.
Even now I feel the urge to stock up on books for the summer, and I've been out of school for a year now! I could be reading like it's summer all year, but there is something about the slower days of summer that lend to curling up on the couch, or laying out at the pool with a novel. (So you don't have to watch the skimpy bathing suits walk by)
Here are a few view-blockers I've come up with that I can't wait to put my nose in. Any awesome finds you have come across that you would like to share? Just leave me a comment or a tweet here.
