Frank W. Benson - The Reader
Summer reading…hammocks, lounge chairs, porch rockers, iced coffee. Is there any more enticing image for an avid reader? Planning the summer reading selections only adds to the anticipation of those long, lazy days. There will be a few best sellers and favorite authors on the list…Joy for Beginners by Erica Bauermeister, Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons, or Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand. The summer reading project…The Greater Journey by David McCullough. What about those new-to-me authors…The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy or The Last Time I Saw Paris by Lynn Sheene. Perhaps a classic or two…Jane Eyre for a reread or Pride and Prejudice for a long overdue first read. But best of all…the serendipity of an unplanned perfect summer reading experience!
