This preference was also formed by the happy ritual of visiting the library every other day once school was out. I'd check out teetering piles of books every week, as many as I could carry. Reading is just my memory of the season.
And the way I honor this as an adult is to choose a single serious novel to read every summer. Something to counteract the frothy frippery. Les Miserables, Crime and Punishment, Lolita, Frankenstein, all summer books for me. This year? Our Mutual Friend. In honor of Lost, in honor of The Unwritten. What will you be reading?
