I just love cozy days reading a book. It is one of my favorite things to do. Because I consider reading a book time well spent.
I couldn’t begin to count all the books that I’ve read in my lifetime.
It makes me smile to see a stack of unread books on my nightstand.
Books just waiting to be opened and explored. Pages to be turned as I learn more about the plot the author shares with me.
I also like to find new-to-me authors that I haven’t had the pleasure of reading before.
In my childhood, I spent many a summer day at the local library. I’d ride my bicycle there and head inside where it was always calm and quiet. A respectful hush seems to automatically settle over a library.
During these hot and humid August days, when it’s too hot to go outside, grab a book and settle down with a favorite beverage.
It is the perfect time to lose yourself in the plot of a book.
The Book Of The Month Club:
This month I chose Karin Slaughter’s newest book. It is called “Girl, Forgotten.”
Book Synopsis Of Girl, Forgotten:
A small town hides a big secret…
Who killed Emily Vaughn?
A girl with a secret…
Longbill Beach, 1982. Emily Vaughn gets ready for the prom. For an athlete, who is smart, pretty, and well-liked, this night should be the highlight of her high school career.
But Emily has a secret. And by the end of the evening, that secret will be silenced forever.
An unsolved murder…
Forty years later, Emily’s murder remains a mystery.
Her tight-knit group of friends closed ranks; her respected, wealthy family retreated inwards; the small town moved on from her grisly attack. But all that’s about to change.
One final chance to uncover a killer…
US Marshal Andrea Oliver arrives in Longbill Beach on her first assignment: to protect a judge receiving death threats.
But, in reality, Andrea is there to find justice for Emily. The killer is still out there—and Andrea must discover the truth before she gets silenced, too.

I’ve always considered reading a great use of my time and energy. Reading is a calming endeavor.
It is what I do every night before turning the lights off and going to sleep.
