A Little Summer Reading. . .

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She faced life with long awkward limbs and big pink-framed glasses. Her hair fell at her waist and was often compared to a bird's nest due to its wonderful affinity for snarls.
For this reason (and many far more embarrassing)
she loved to spend time at the library, and especially enjoyed the summer reading lists.
She would read all the books long before summer was over
and the library would often reward her with $5 gift certificates for ice cream
or a small bagful of candy and bookmarks.
But the real prize for her was the adventure found in the stories
and the escape it provided from the 100 degree weather in the Valley.

I used to just adore summer reading lists. For me it was part of the great whirlwind that only summer vacation can produce. Even thinking about it now I still get that excited feeling, as though I have two completely free months sprawling out before me just waiting to be filled with fun-only activities.

But alas, adulthood has claimed me as it's own and I've been forced to bid farewell to those carefree days.

Kind of.

So here's the deal: I was thinking I would still love to do a summer reading list and would like to create a little bloggy book club!
I've been harassing other book-savvy bloggers out there to take on this project but I figured if I really want this I should tackle it myself. So keep your eyes peeled for an invite you will be receiving and comment to let me know if you are interested or email me! Also let me know if you would like to contribute to the possible list.

I think it could be so fun! I would love to post a linky list on my sidebar of all the blogs participating and we could encourage each other along the way. You know you want to. :)
At the very least it will get me back in the saddle reading again!

my email: littlegirlshinyworld@yahoo.com
Please email me so I get something besides African lottery announcements and Viagra ads.
