Today, we are re-launching our www.thebookanistas.com website with a bright new look.
We're sharing summer (reading) tips. Here are mine:
- Read one book outside of your favorite genre this summer. An adult book, a sci-fi (if you're a contemp fan--or vice versa), or even a pile of picture books. And, reread an old childhood favorite (Nancy Drew, Little House, Judy Blume.) Ask yourself if you've become a different type of reader as an adult. Do you still love the oldie (and for the same or different reasons)? Can you appreciate the off-genre book (and how/why)?
- Don't wear a binki if you don't want to. T-shirts rule. Especially if they're from Broadway shows or Buffy or make me look like I have an actual waistline (hey, I'm allowed to dream).
