Everyone who knows me knows that I love to read. I read 2 or 3 books a week. My husband bought me a Nook Tablet a couple years ago, but it pooped out last month and won't hold a charge and now I am stuck re-reading all the books I already had. I plan to hit up the library and get some fresh words in the house! You should too.
Maybe I am the only summer reading program nerd here, but I loved the summer reading program at my library when I was a kid. Did you know there are summer reading programs for grown-ups?! I am SO going to win some prizes this summer! Check out these local summer reading programs for kids and adults. Fresh books, and prizes! Nothing better.
