what have you been reading this summer?

Hi there Blair students, parents and staff!
I hope you have had a lovely summer with family, friends and a few good books.

I really enjoyed reading the novel The Help and then seeing the movie with some friends. The book inspired me to re-read the Pulitzer Prize-winning, classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, which I haven't read since my early university days. Other than novels, I've enjoyed reading Food Network magazines and some of my university reading with fun titles like Researching Lived Experience: Human Science for an Action Sensitive Pedagogy!

As a family, we all enjoy the Harry Potter books. We often listen to the audio book versions when we go on road trips. This summer we listened to the fifth book on our way to and from Oregon and then watched the movie when we got home. We also enjoyed the final Harry Potter movie in the theatre. The movies can't beat the books but I love how the movies provide such rich visuals, sounds and music to the stories I love so much. My sons have had some lazy afternoons in the backyard, reading books in their hammocks which makes my heart sing!
What great books have you read this summer?
