Summer Reading Is Coming!

Imagine lying in your hammock, completely spellbound by an amazing book, during a beautiful summer afternoon. Crickets are chirping, a soft breeze is blowing, and you are so relaxed (or, maybe if you're reading a thriller, on edge--but in a good way). Or, perhaps you are a parent longing for fun and free entertainment for your kids during a quiet afternoon or to refresh your family's library with a new batch of books and DVDs to enjoy together.

Every Wednesday night when I was a child, I would put on my most old-fashioned nightgown and the bonnet my mother had sewn and watch Little House on the Prairie. I received the Garth Williams illustrated books as a Christmas present and read them repeatedly. Little did I know, but I was “geeking” out and “cosplaying” (short for costume play.)  Recently, I watched a Little House reunion on TV and was enthralled by all three hours, and, no, I didn’t wear my bonnet. The only thing that would have made it better was having someone to share it with.
