    On those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer there is nothing quite like a compelling book to keep you company.

Here is a short list of hot reads for this summer’s reading pleasure, and all are available in several formats, including eBook.

    Summer fun for people who’d rather stay inside, that is. Seasonal affective disorder is usually associated with wintertime, but did you know that 10% of people with seasonal affective disorder get bleh, blue, and bummed out in the summer?

    Hello again, romance readers!

    I have some good news for you: SUMMER IS COMING. You know what that means? Pool reads. Beach reads. Lounge-chair-with-lemonade reads. Romance is one of my favorite genres year-round, but it especially lends itself to warm weather and sunshine (and long plane rides... or while waiting in epic lines… or snow days… well, I digress).

    Let’s discuss the benefits, shall we?

  • Summer Reading isn't just for kids
    Posted on: Tuesday, June 06, 2017

    Summer Reading is for everyone! You might remember participating in summer reading as a kid, but our program is for all ages-- even adults.

    Studies have shown that reading can stimulate your mind, reduce stress, improve your memory and concentration, and strengthen your analytical thinking skills. Even better, it only takes 20 minutes of reading each day to enjoy these benefits. "Reading" doesn't mean you have to sit perfectly still in a chair with a 900-page book from another century. Your 20 minutes per day will net you the same benefits from reading no matter if you're "reading" in print, digital, or even audio formats.
