Mission: Summer Syllabus




Ashlie over at the wonderful blog, Be Your Own Lady  encouraged her readers to create a summer syllabus for themselves; including things that we want to read, watch, or do over the summer. This is the first summer in two years that I feel like I'll finally have a bit of time to actually enjoy the season. As a librarian, summer is typically our busiest time of year but I'm looking forward to squeezing in some fun where I can. :)

Here are the books I'd like to read this summer, in between trips to the beach, hikes, and work. I'm going to try to not stress too much if I don't get everything read, but this seems like a good place to start. Thank goodness for audiobooks!
