Summer Reading 2
I think this is a wonderful companion piece to my last blog. It makes me laugh but it actually does make me sad. Wandering through book stores has always been one of my greatest life pleasures. I remember many weekend nights browsing the book stores in the Harvard Square of my youth, sitting on the floor with friends between aisles and discussing our latest literary finds. Do teens do that anymore? Kindles and Nooks are good, but don't do much for the real feel of browsing. If your teen needs to actually buy their books at a book store, don't do it for them. Walk them in...sit on the floor in an aisle of books, and spend a little time browsing.
