We had so much fun presenting our first every Summer Reading Bonanza, and we hope you all did, too. (Please share your feedback on our new event in the comments!) Congrats to all our winners–I’m a little envious of the prize packages we handed out. Huge shout out and thank you to Diane Vallere for being the creative driving force behind this event. She’s amazing!
Today’s post is going to be a bit on the shorter side (mostly because I planned poorly). You see, our family is heading out for our first ever summer vacation! Usually, we use up our vacation hours when munchkin has school breaks. This year, we were able to save some for a summer trip. We’re renting a cottage with another family on a lake in New Hampshire, and we can’t wait to get there. I’m woefully unprepared, and of course, did not write this post nearly early enough. (I should probably pack, too. Soon.)
I’m bringing a couple of top priority items on this vacation: books from my TBR pile and my new tablet, with a loaded up Kindle library. I’ve got Donna White Glaser’s book one in the Letty Whitaker series, Jim & Joyce Lavene’s book one in the new Pumpkin Patch series (a preview copy!), Hallie Ephron’s Never Tell a Lie, and a whole bunch more. I’ve been adding all the Mysteristas’ books I can get my hands on, and I’m so excited for the new ones (Diane!). I’ve also got the laptop and the WIP loaded into Scrivener. In all honesty, I’m not sure how much I’ll get to do, and I’m refusing the stress about anything–I’m on VACATION! But I’m really, really hoping to do a lot of reading and writing.
Do you have any relaxing summer trips planned–especially ones that will let you read? What’s your must-have reading material for a day at the beach or the lake? Where’s your bookmark right now? We’d love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful first week of August everyone!
