July is when our daylilies bloom. Old perennial plants that are new every year. There are so many good books to read. I look at the perennials and think about what lasts and blesses readers over time.
I appreciate book reviews and am reading from a few books I learned about from Time of Singing poetry journal.
We also enjoy donating poetry journals and books to thrift stores. Perhaps someone may discover poetry and write a poem!
My Summer Reading Plan this year is to read from my small home library. Then in the Fall I will look at some new books as well. And of course my plan can be adjusted – just a way to think about summer this year.
