- Step 1: Search the internet for summer reading Search library and bookseller web sites – most offer summer reading lists in different genres.
- Step 2: Find easy reading Find something easy and pleasurable to read. Vacations are for fun – not work
- Step 3: Find out what bloggers are saying Once you identify a few different titles, search to learn what bloggers are saying about them.
- Step 4: Make sure it’s available in paperback When you find a book you’re interested in purchasing, make sure it is available in paperback. Paperbacks are smaller, lighter, and easier to read when lounging in a lounge chair.
- TIP: Don’t forget your reading glasses.
- Step 5: Look for books in e-books or MP3 players Consider books that might work well in e-book readers or MP3 players – they’re portable and easy to travel with. Most library memberships offer them for free.
- FACT: Did you know? Recent studies report that just six minutes of daily reading can reduce stress by two-thirds – that’s more than taking a walk or playing a video game.
