Summer Reading!

Posted on: July 8, 2008

We’ve all heard the phase, “reading is fundamental”! Well it’s true! And no, to answer your question, it is not always boring. Reading can be fun as well as entertaining and enlightening. Don’t think of it as reading chapter after chapter in a text book. It’s time to think about summer reading for yourself. Think of it as absorbing yourself into an interesting story in a novel that will keep you turning the page. The key to reading for your own personal enjoyment is to read books that interest you or best relate to you. If you’re into art or music, try reading art or music related books that allow you to gain more knowledge of the subject. Or maybe you enjoy a good novel with an ending that leaves you waiting for the sequel. Whatever your choice may be, I hope you decide to pick up a book and cut down a few hours of sitting in front of the television! Reading during your down time can be relaxing.

If you’re into group activities or projects, why not start a book club of your own and invite your friends? You can collectively select books that interest all of you. There are websites that help you start you own book club, run your book club, and even help you to choose what books to read. You can find books that best suit your age, interest, hobbies, and concerns. You can make up questions and organize discussions to collectively discuss the book and hear others’ views, while informing each other. You can choose a book of the month or depending on how fast your book club reads, try a book a week! What is summer without warm weather, trips to the beach, and a great book to dive into! If you don’t start a book club with your friends, why not join a book club at your local library or near by recreation center. Challenge yourself and others to read a few books this summer and exercise your brain. If you’ve faithfully read every Harry Potter book and you’re eagerly searching for other fantasy novels, try searching for others like it on Or if you’re into heart-warming series, try reading all parts of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. To find a book that best suits you, try going to Barnes & Noble or Borders online.

So pick up a good book and let your mind soar and your thoughts wander. Happy summer reading!

I graduated with my BA in English so i read A LOT!!! It was not until after I graduated when I found that reading really can be great! I encourage everyone to find a style or genre that suits you, and you’ll find yourself going through books quickly!
