A Summer Reading Friday Five

This week, then, a Summer Reading Friday Five from Songbird at the Revgals.

1) Do you think of summer as a particularly good season for reading? Why or why not?

Yes! Not having rehearsals in the evenings and the long hours of sunlight make it especially a good time to read. Finding enough time to read is always a struggle for me, but it seems easier in the summer!

2) Have you ever fallen asleep reading on the beach?

You know, I don't think I have! But I sure would like to!

3) Can you recall a favorite childhood book read in the summertime?

There is a wonderful Canadian author of children's chapter books named Bernice Thurman Hunter. I could read her books over and over and over again.

4) Do you have a favorite genre for light or relaxing reading?

A favourite genre, and a favourite author! When I'm looking for something quick and silly, I read detective novels by Robert Parker.

5) What is the next book on your reading list?

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.
