Reading is a Magic Carpet to Unknown Lands

There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.   – Josh Jameson

It seems a bit funny to me to be writing an article on reading, expecting you to read it, because I love to read and want to inspire you to read more.

I am addicted to books and love to read.  I will admit however that I’m as picky about what I read as I am with just about everything else in my life. I like certain books, certain types of writing, certain authors.  I devour Louis L’amour, Nancy Campbell Allen, Josi Kilpack all of which write novels.  (Western, Steampunk Romance, and Proper Romance respectively)  But I also like Kristi Ling’s, Operation Happiness and Sharlene Hawkes, Kissing A Frog, or Dr. Julie Hanks, The Assertive Guide for Women just to improve myself.

If you’ve been following me on Facebook you’ve heard me talk about Ms. Penelope Pickwick and my weekly bookworm report that’s on FB Live on Lauri’s Lemonade Stand.  My goal was to read 10 particular books this year and it needed to have an element of fun.  Ms. Pickwick is my bookworm.  Made out of colorful circles and each time I finish a book, she grows by another circle.  She is beautiful and growing at an alarming rate!  I most definitely love to read!

This love of reading has brought me to loving libraries more, learning about book events and the best part?  Finding out about organizations like “Books on The Underground” in London, “Books On The Subway” in New York, and “I Believe in Book Fairies” which is now worldwide and will be featured later this summer on the podcast.

Do you like to read?  It’s time for summer reading picks and I would love to hear about yours!  Share your favorites and some that you might be interested in grabbing for those days on the beach or if you aren’t close to the beach, by the pool, or to my Arizona or Texas friends…inside a lovely air-conditioned home.  Enjoy your summer reading!

Hint:  If you click on the authors above it will take you directly to their links to buy those books!  Happy reading!
