Fun summer books & hammocks.
Is there a better combination? (Ok, maybe if you throw an ice cold lemonade in there as well.)
We thought it would be fun for everyone to list their favorite summer reading book of all time, and where you were when you read it. It can be from a vacation you took as a child. Or the vacation you’re taking right this very moment. It can trashy, sophisticated, funny, classic…whatever.
Brent’s favorite summer read was a book called The Saturdays, by Elizabeth Enright. He found it while visiting his grandparents, on a bookshelf in his mother’s childhood bedroom. He re-read it every summer of his youth, sitting under the same chestnut tree in his grandparents’ yard.
Josh loved a crazy book called House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski that he took with him on a long summer trip to visit his uncle in France. It’s a pyschological/supernatural cult horror novel that completely overshadowed the trip. But was so good that it was worth it.
A friend at Serenity Health and Home Decor has generously donated this cool Handmade Mayan Double Hammock for a giveaway.
