2. Take on the reading program at my library

THE SUMMER LIST 2013:

  1. Finish writing a book
  2. Take on the reading program at my library
  3. Learn to drive
  4. Finish a knitting project
  5. Finish an art project
  6. Memorize a song on the piano

Out of all the items on that list, this one will have the most posts under it.

Let me tell you a little story.

I read a lot. Now, I haven’t always been reading so much, but writing and reading kind of go hand-in-hand. Good writers read. So around seventh or eighth grade I started reading more. Now I love books. Blah blah blah… the point is that I read a lot of books now, particularly during the summer because I don’t have school stuff to do.

A few years back I realized that, as a high school student, I could get stuff for reading. That revelation changed my life.

I could get stuff for doing absolutely nothing different than what I already do.

Ever since then, I’ve been going over to my local library, filling out little forms and things, and getting stuff. The stuff varies.

So this summer, that is what I plan to do. READ. Yay.

And what does that have to do with anything?

Well, I’ve decided that I’m going to document by progress. That’s right. I’m going to start writing book “reviews.” *shudder*

The word “reviews” is in quotation marks because I’m guessing that they probably won’t be very helpful, and I doubt that they’ll be very review-y.

This is going to be interesting.
