Summer Reading

Here we are already; it is late summer and the days are passing quickly!  How are your summer reading plans going?

For the past ten days I have been reading Margaret George’s 800+ page biographical novel of Mary Queen of Scots. Wow! for my summer reading, this has certainly taken precedence.  It has really immersed me and I am just now coming up for air.  But I am also enjoying this book a lot. I have less than a hundred pages left and then will get back on track to finish my summer reading goals.

“It is almost a reconciliation to having my leg broken to contemplate the amount of reading I am going to do this summer. I am getting better fast and I am afraid I’ll get well so soon I won’t get to read enough.”
― David McCullough, Truman

“But the summer had been a very happy one, too — a time of glad living with summer suns and skies, a time of keen delight in wholesome things; a time of renewing and deepening of old friendships; a time in which she had learned to live more nobly, to work more patiently, to play more heartily.”

― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James

“What a blessing it is to love books. Everybody must love something, and I know of no objects of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden.”
― Elizabeth von Arnim, The Solitary Summer

About Theresa

I live in an old farmhouse in upstate New York (no, *not* the big city!) in the country with my family, two dogs, two calves, and two horses. I love to cross stitch, quilt, read, and look at needlework blogs :) and I love coffee *and* tea!
