Q: Absolute best part about summer?
A: You can read WHATEVER you feel like! Magazines, graphic novels, read something ridiculous, tackle a tome, absorb audiobooks, or read online--you can do YOU all summer long!
One of the most frequent comments we hear from teenagers throughout the year is that either, 1) they don’t have time to read (too much homework), or, 2) the ‘classics’ that they are assigned to read and analyze for high school classes (possibly the same ones their parents read in high school) are sucking the life out of them…
This, my friends, is one of the most beautiful aspects of the sunny season (next to sleeping in of course!): the freedom to choose what, when, and how you read! Not a “reader”?
