Summer Reading

School is out for my kids and we did our annual Summer Reading purchases.  We head out to a couple of different bookstores and get books for all summer.

My youngest has some books assigned to him by the school so that was pretty much his choice.  My oldest is going to read the Dragonlance Chronicles.  He is 14 so that really is the best age for that.

I didn't find anything myself. But I have some Amazon gift cards burning a hole in my pocket so I need to get in and find some books.

Myself, I have fond memories of riding my bike to the local library and getting books to help out my D&D game or books on science, I have always been a big science geek.

How about you?  Do you have a Summer Reading ritual?

Let your 14-year old know that one of your dorkiest blogmates heartily approves! I've read DL Chronicles four times. Probably one of my all-time favorite trilogies. :)

Glad to see you helping your kids read this summer :-) I'm posting about my summer reading with my girls each Monday this summer.

Awesome! I will check out your blog.

No specific ritual, just a tendency to read outside a lot, and around a fire as often as possible.

I can recommend some fantastic summer reading for you and your amazon card. Ben Aaronovich's Peter Grant Rivers of London series.

Seriously fantastic writing.

I usually read more books during the summer but this one will be spent editing a manuscript instead.

Interesting coincidence that you should ask on Bloomsday. I reread Ulysses and try to find some new book about the book every June.
