One that I could hardly wait for when I was working...
When school would let out for summer I would eagerly peruse the shelf laden with books.
I'd read the book jackets and then decide which one to start reading...
you might have gathered that I collect books just for summertime reading.
I find them at thrift shops, garage sales and of course, our wonderful local book stores.
A fun light read, one that would make a good cottage or beach book.
I picked up this book mark at Chapters...
I usually use a piece of paper as I never turn down the corners of the pages...
having worked in a library for many years that habit does not sit well with me at all.
Chester thought it was a cat toy!
Here are just a few of the books that sit on the shelf waiting...
It took me a long time to read The Time Traveler's Wife because we were travelling at the time I was reading it and had so many interruptions and I could never just pick it up where I left off because of the time travel involved...I am hoping this one is easier to follow.
Mother liked this but thought it "a bit of a different book"
On my toes today I am sporting Embarca dare you by OPI
a hot pink shade that shimmers with light.
Pedicures are a summertime luxury and one that I indulge in as sandal season is hard on the feet.
I am so grateful to have a wonderful gal who helps keep my feet in good shape.
I cannot do my toes anymore as I have poor eyesight and find it a challenge to bend over and paint with precision!
What books do you have set aside for your summertime reading?
TGIF it's Friday!
It will be a busy weekend...
a baby shower, a short boat trip and a potluck supper.
Whatever you have planned I hope you make some time to relax and put your feet up.
