Summertime means a lot of things to a lot of people, and it’s surprising how many books are involved – grade level summer reading lists for schoolchildren, assigned books for advanced literature students, beach reads for sunny getaways, recommended summer reading for mental vacations, and even library volunteering hours for scholarship hopefuls, visits to iconic bookstores in vacation destinations (what, am I the only one who does that?), and books-turned-into-movies debut on the big screen. But books can relate to birds too, in ways that make you smile and help you make it through the work week on these hot summer days!
I love To Kill a Mockingbird and reread it nearly every year, usually around Halloween for its spooky ending. And in case you’re wondering, yes, I have read Go Set a Watchman, and wow, it’s one of the most horrid books I’ve ever read (I won’t be rereading that one every year, and frankly, never again), but to each his own if you enjoyed it. This year I’m not rereading any books, however, as I’ve set a personal goal to read only books I’ve never read before – and after 62 books so far this year, I’m still going strong. There are definitely birdy books on my to-read list, so stay tuned in the coming weeks for the premier of the new Birder’s Bookshelf! Until then, grab your favorite title, author or a new book that catches your eye, and happy reading!
