Check out my post on @quakerranch to see where I do my best #summerreading!
Reading Florida in Nevada.
Saturdays are for reading books and receiving flowers. #itwasagoodday #saturyay
Lillies and roses and book #ohmy.
Saw this on my run to CVS to buy an emergency book for a solo lunch. Everyone’s a critic! #filth
“Still Me” = “Louisa in The Devil Wears Prada”...Despite the familiar, fairly obvious storyline, it’s a quick (read it in less than a day), cute book.
Summer Mondays are for leisurely breakfasts.
Reminded of a childhood spent poolside in Miami while reading short stories about Floridian shenanigans.
Lots of walking and listening to @audible_com lately.
At my #breakfastclub, I also get the “leftovers” to add to my #littlefreelibrary.  Are there any here that I should keep for my self and read?!
Look what I scored at my #breakfastclub this morning! Instead of a group read, everyone brings the books they’ve read during the course of the month and swaps them.
With the #allcaps madness around here this week, “Us Against You” could not have come at a better time! I’m not particularly enthusiastic about sports, so reading (and LOVING) “Beartown” was a peculiar choice for me. However, much like “The Art of Fielding” by Chad Harbach, these books aren’t really about sports, but beautifully examines how sports can help boys become men and learn how to be in the world with others and themselves. Where “Beartown” uses hockey to remind us of how hard it is to be a teenager, this book illustrates how impossible it is to get parenting just right. . Backman delivers again with this one, which is currently my favorite read of 2018. It’s thought-provoking, moving without being overly sentimental, and like all of Backman’s work, laced with humor.
“What does it take to be a good parent? Not much. Just everything. Absolutely everything.” . . There have been some illuminating thought on parenting in my recent reads. Just a few pages into “Us Against You” by @backmansk and I’m hooked.
Summer officially starts today for us, and I’m looking forward to the days ahead spent leisurely reading outside.
Checking out a new burger place with my new book.
The boy’s salvaged books are out of boxes,  out of the basement, and onto a new bookshelf in his room.
Another day, another quandary: #bingewatch the new season of @unbreakablekimmyschmidt or #bingeread “A Brief History of Seven Killings” by @marlonjameswriter? #whattodo
