I just finished teaching my final class of the summer today, and grades have been turned in.
That means it’s time to start reading.
For whatever reason, I don’t get much personal reading done during a semester, so I really look forward to the summer when I can make up for lost time.
I’m currently in the middle of reading Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield, a fictional retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. The book is the last one to read of the five books I received on my last birthday from my family.
Once I finish this book, I think next on my list is the new John Grisham novel, Sooley, a fictional basketball story set at NC Central University.
From there, my three sons have once again supplied me with some books to read, this time for Father’s Day. The books include The Dome by Stephen King, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein, and Dark Matter by Blake Crouch.
Summer is already my favorite time of the year, and having some good books to read is just icing on the cake…
