Summer Reading Programs

Summer was always a season of reading for me growing up. Those were the days that Jackie and I could go to the library, browse, get our books and then take them home and read. Now there are reading incentive programs to encourage summer reading. Most libraries have them and a few bookstores. (If you have children in grades 1 - 6, check out the program at Barnes & Noble. For reading any 8 books and keeping a brief journal, your child can get a free book. Not a bad deal. )

Of course the library programs are always good too. I'm participating in the one with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library. They made it easy for adults - read 3 books, record them with a brief summary and turn it in for prizes. The prizes that made me sign up were a $5 certificate for the Recycled Reads sale and a cookie on a stick from Cookies by Design. If they had only had a coupon for CC's it would have been perfect - a book, a cookie and a cup of coffee. What more do you need?!
