Keep Calm & Read On

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Yesterday afternoon I attended an event, Keep Calm & Read On, at the library, which was sponsored by Random House. The Random House representative gave a lively talk about current and upcoming books published just in time for summer. The review peaked my interest in a number of books that I might not otherwise consider. Now I have a lot of potential summer reads...

...and a goodie bag too! A free tote is always a handy thing but I also picked up two free books. Books I'd be interested in but that would be low on my purchase list. After all, there are only so many discretionary dollars in my piggy bank. I chose "The Dream Lover" by Elizabeth Berg which is historical fiction about the author George Sands and "The Witch of Lime Street" by David Jaher about spiritualism advocate Margery and Harry Houdini.
Both will go on my bedside table. As part of my night time ritual I read for about 30 minutes before I go to sleep. Reading helps me wind down at the end of the day. Just one of the many benefits of reading!
Today it's unseasonably hot and humid. Maybe I'll start working on that summer reading list.

    Oh what fun. I too read before going to sleep. My husband now at fifty six has decided to partake in the joy of read. My kids have always been big readers I guess you are never to old to change.
    Interesting choices of books I will have to check them out. emoticon
    Please post any books you enjoy reading as I am always looking for something new.
