Summer Reading

Let The Journey Begin

Did You Know?

Summer is a great time to start that novel you've always wanted to read, but just haven't had the time. Did you know that reading during the summer can significantly improve your reading skills? Instead of losing knowledge during those lazy, hot, summer days reading will help you gain new knowledge. The good news is that you can pick anything to read that interest you. It doesn't matter what you choose to read, it's just important to do it!

Books Take You Places When You're Stuck At Home

Take A Journey

Books are great escapes that can take you on many journeys to places you may never get to experience otherwise. Whether you enjoy Sci-Fy, Realistic Fiction, Romance, Horror, Fantasy, or Non-Fiction, books can take you to worlds you never knew existed.

6 Tips To Make Time For Reading

  • If you're an early riser, read in the morning before your daily activities begin.
  • Leave a book in the bathroom.
  • Traveling this summer? Use the long commute time to dive into a good book. You'll be amazed how fast time will fly.
  • If an hour is too long, set aside just a half-hour of daily reading.
  • If you're not interested after the first 50 pages, stop reading until you find something you will enjoy.
  • Figure out a movie you want to see, and then read the book first.
