Decoda’s Summer Reading 2019 – Marci
Date posted: July 3, 2019
I was a kid who spent July and August racing to reach the end goal of the library summer reading program. I had a healthy love for the characters in the books I was reading, but I also felt pretty competitive about wanting to read the most books. Fast forward a million years and I’m still a super-sized fan of the summer reading program. Now though, it’s a program of my own design with my own rules. If I don’t like a book, I don’t have to finish it in order to get a sticker on my reading record. I can give myself a sticker whether I read the whole book or not.
My preferred reading space is out in the baking sun, with my feet up. Sometimes this is out on my deck with my dog, other times it is in my lounge chair, which is oh so comfortable for napping. I read a bit, nap a bit, read a bit, earn myself a sparkly sticker. It’s the best of summer reading programs.
