Reading books will not only make you APPEAR smart, but MAKE you smart, as well.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Sounds like a quote by Elle Woods.
So reading books by Emily Giffin and Sophie Kinsella might not educate you, as much as reading Moby Dick and War and Peace would, but whose to say you can’t learn a little bit about yourself from reading their books. After just finishing up a classic, The Sun Also Rises and a memoir, The Glass Castle, I figured I had a pretty good excuse to take a break, and read a Sophie Kinsella book, Shopaholic and Sister (the fourth in Kinsella’s Shopaholic series). This one should be a quick read this week at the beach, and then on to The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy.
The hubs and my mother both agreed that this was a great, classic beach read. Plus, it was only $2.99 on my Kindle. Can’t beat that!
After completing these two books, I plan to read The Help and then Water for Elephants on my next beach trip at the end of July, if not before.
I’ve only heard the best things about these books, and can’t wait to delve into them, and chat with friends about them. Plus, I want to have read the book, before seeing each of the movies.
So, what are you reading?
Or what’s next on your summer reading list?
I have a friend that just read Heaven is for Real, and loved it.
Hoping to borrow that from her soon, as she said it’s a good, quick read – and very powerful!
Hope y’all have a great start to your week!
We’re headed out on the beach in just a bit…summer reading, bring it on…
…okay, not until the girls are napping this afternoon, but it still counts!
