Summer Reads

Summer is slowly coming to an end, and I can’t help but think about lazy summer days as a kid. I remember endless days of sleeping late, summer camps, and vacations. While I don’t get those little luxuries anymore, I find myself creating my own summer escape by overwhelming myself with books. Currently, I have one book on an end table, two books waiting to be read, the last ¼ of a book to finish on my Kindle, two audio books on my iphone, and one audio book on CD in my car. In fact, I think I may have a problem. Oddly enough, I am overwhelming myself with books at the same time when I am overwhelmed in work. Maybe that is the point. Books are my escape, my motivators, and my inspiration that I need right now. So lately, I’ve been revisiting some old favorites. For me, it feels like spending a week with Grandma in the summer…familiar. There are just some books that I keep coming back to over and over. For me, my rereads tend to be nonfiction. Currently, I have revived some of my favorite C.S. Lewis nonfiction. I read several of his books a few summers ago, and I find myself returning to them now. What about you? Any favorites that you visit again and again?
