Take a "Book-cation" this Summer!

by Jamie

Is there a better time to read beside summer? (Well, maybe a rainy day, a snow day...a sick day...ok...any day!) But summer is an awesome time to grab some great books and take a book-cation! Know what that is? Sure... it's a vacation with a book! Free... relaxing... and very imaginative! Can't ask for more than that.

With the hot weather rolling in... there is no better time to take a break and focus on great literature. Books are little healing time capsules that allow you to relax and enter a different world, travel to far away places, share other's adventures, and even get a birdseye view of a romance.

Here are a few great ideas to get your "book-cation" started...

1) Check out Homeschool Literature to join their book club and for great ideas on good books by homeschoolers and for homeschoolers.
2) Check out these great homeschool reading lists - just to give you some age specific ideas.
3) Still not sure what would get your children reading? Check out Honey for a Child's Heart and Read for the Heart for great comprehensive lists of awesome children's literature.
4) Go to your local library and fill a bag!
5) Find a big comfy chair and your favorite beverage and begin your "book-cation!"
