Back in 2015, Beth and I decided to do something fun. We decided that, for the summer we would challenge each other to read something outside our comfort zones by each of us assigning the other four books to be read before Labor Day. The books should somehow be thematically linked, but that theme could be anything. Beth assigned me four books by the same author. I assigned Beth four books that had to do, somewhat loosely, with travel. We had a lot of fun that summer, and even did some extra credit work in the form of creating sundaes based on book characters.
And, then, inexplicably, we took two summers off from this fun tradition.
Well, ladles and jelly spoons, we are bringing it back. This year we are once again assigning each other summer reading to be done by Labor Day! Our books will be assigned next week and we will be off to work!
