For many of us, summer is a time for reading: on vacation, at the pool or beach, or on a park bench.
I gravitate toward nonfiction and historical fiction. My son Justin is a voracious reader and has been challenging me to read other genres. So this summer, I read the science fiction classic Dune by Frank Herbert (and watched the two movie versions!) and I’m 200 pages into the 1296 page post-apocalyptic dark fantasy novel The Stand by Stephen King, about a deadly COVID-like pandemic.
Whether you’re in a book club or simply read on your own, do you read to:
- learn and gain knowledge,
- escape into another time or world,
- be entertained with a good story,
- broaden your horizons, or
- relax and have quiet time?
I’d love to hear why you read and what is on your summer reading list!
If you belong to a book club, personal or corporate, that explores nonfiction, we’d love you to consider The Wisest Investment. We offer attractive discounts on bulk book purchases.
