The weather isn’t inspiring but flipping the calendar page has been …  it’s time to think of summer reading! 

Many of us have rituals around packing and selecting books for extended stays away, sometimes to destinations remote. Have you begun your planning? I have a list on the go and will be sharing it with you here soon.

To make it easy, here are two headings to get you started:   (E-mail your responses to and I’ll tally the titles and post here for all to see)

The sooner you reply, the sooner I’ll get the list out … looking forward to your input!
