Reading is one of my favorite things to do year round but summer seems to lend itself more completely to it. I also know people who don’t love reading so I have some suggestions forReaders AND Non Readers (NR).
Starting my day with my Bible is a must while drinking my first cup of coffee. I also have a couple of more habits I practice: copying scripture and reading a devotional. Bible reading helps plant my feet on solid ground and lift my spirit before kissing little faces tiptoeing down the stairs.
If you’re a NR, no worries. The YouVersion Bible app has an audio feature so all you do is listen. Isn’t that handy? There is a kid version as well, and my children love listening and gaming from their devices too.
When it comes to reading novels, it has to hook me from the first chapter with story and characters. I don’t like a lot of setting descriptions, and I love a happy ending. When I find a great book, I read it every spare moment finishing quickly. I even make myself stop reading until I’ve completed a certain unfavored task. Here are a few of my favorites lately~
I’m also a two or three books at time kind of reader. While reading a novel, I am usually reading two non fiction reads as well. They usually related to parenting/homeschooling. Here are a couple of my favorites of all time~
Did you know listening to Audible is reading too? And there is no need to pay for an account. Shop Amazon like you do on a daily basis looking through book choices with audible. I am listening to Worthy right now for $1.99. Can’t beat that deal! Once you have purchased the audible version of the book, download it on your audible app and listen away. It’s a great option for reading while driving, exercising, or chores.
I hope this list inspires you to read something during your long summer day! Next up…. EAT.
