Spin Cycle--Summer Reading

As I might have said once or twice (or maybe more), I love to read.  It's my escape and a way to deal with stress.  Reading a book can make my stress levels reduce by giving me a way to just let it all go for a while.  Summer is a wonderful time to read.  Camping trips and road trips give me much opportunities to read to my heart's content.
There are a few books on the agenda for this summer. We have our road trip book--the set of David Eddings books I am read aloud when we decide that we must escape town. We are currently on book three of five. Turbo is totally enthralled and gets quite disappointed when we actually reach our destination as that means he has to wait for more of the story.
I also have a few books waiting for me on the Kindle for camping trips:
  • Lynsay Sands' newest--The Immortal Who Loved Me
  • Amanda Quick's newest--Garden of lies
  • Rick Castle books: Heat Wave, Naked Heat, Heat Rises
I will probably go back to some oldies but goodies too with:
  • Zoe Archer's Blades of the Rose series (she also has a few other books lurking on the old Kindle as well.  Steampunkish and fun.)
  • Gail Carriger has several series, but there is a new book in one that I have yet to read.  I think I need to before getting the next in the series. Her series are also quite steampunk and tons of fun.
  • I have several History books I can delve into.  Yes, I am a history nerd.
  • I also have a stock pile of magazines to catch up on--Parent, Allrecipes, Food and Family, Good Housekeeping, All You.
I truly have some reading ahead of me this summer.  The fact that I read year round has nothing to do with summer reading. It really doesn't.  Honest!
OK, yes I am a bookworm.  In another life I would ahve been a librarian.  To be able to surround myself with books...
Bliss.
A reading nook would be ideal, like these:

Maybe cushier chairs...
So, read and enjoy your summer!

I love those book nooks! I need one of my own! I get too motion sick to read in the car, so I drive while my husband reads. It does help the drive go by faster!
