I completely geek out about what I am going to be reading when spring and summer start getting close. Even though my kids are the ones with summer vacation, I start to daydream about lazy afternoons at the pool, beach music and holding a good book.
Raising 4 children and having a husband is anecdotal evidence enough that not everyone likes to read. Not everyone living under my roof loves to read. That said, there is enough evidence about reading and it’s the importance that I believe we readers should continue to share and hand off favorites in the event that our little book review might just be the one review that converts another person.
Maybe it was the English teacher that forced reading on you; however, I venture to bet there are still a few good books that you might enjoy.
Here’s a quick list of books that are sure to leave a smile on your face and possibly a desire to read more.
Have you read any good books lately?
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt
This was one of the very first books that I can remember reading just for fun! This might be one of my favorite books of all time. It is going on the list this summer.
Energy Bus, Jon Gordon
I love a good story, one that is easy to read, where you are cheering for the underdog. This is a fast read, great message, and one of the first books that I remember Drew talking about.
Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch Albom
In the story, Morrie cautions that at the end of our lives, we will miss our relationships with people the most. We all need a reminder to slow down and appreciate each other because that is what is really worthy of our time and energy.
The Precious Present, Spencer Johnson
It is such a good book. Everyone must read this one.
Thank goodness it is a REALLY FAST BOOK to read because it has a play on words and I wanted to know how it would end. If you want the feeling that you read a book , got a great message, and have the next book that you want to gift to graduates & “hard to buy for” people, then look no further.
The Traveler’s Gift, Andy Andrews
If you like the movie and the story to It’s a Wonderful Life, you will LOVE this book. It’s the first of 3 books in the series. After you read this one, you will be GLAD that there is more. I read this book once a year.
