Summer Reading Challenge
“Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.” — Kathleen Norris
We agree, and this summer we invite members of our apartment community here at The Groves at Milford to read at least one book from these suggestions, which are based on genre. While we don’t have prizes, like you may remember from elementary school days, we know you’ll have the satisfaction of enjoying a good read.
Coming of age is a topic that is often addressed in novels and there are some rather remarkable stories in print that may tug at your heartstrings, cringe at remembered experience, or make you laugh in delight.
We all need advice, or self-help, and we should have at least one type of non-fiction book on this list, right? Reading something from this list of self-help books can give you the boost you need.
When you head to the public library, ask the librarian to recommend a book — or refer to this list of books recommended by librarians; they know what’s popular and great to read.
Memoirs are a fascinating way to learn about someone’s life. Often they are more interesting than fiction may be.
Fairy tales are the perfect way to while away time on a lazy weekend. Curl up in the comfort of your apartment and let one of these books take you to a kingdom far, far away.
You’ve seen the movie, but have you read the book? Generally speaking, the book is better than the movie, so relive a favorite movie by reading all the details they couldn’t fit in. We’ll get you started with these books that were made into movies.
An immigrant story is a good way to educate yourself on and gain sympathy for some of the realities of the immigrant experience from past and present perspectives.
When books become the topic of a book, interesting things can happen, take Inkheart, Fahrenheit 451, and The Book Thief — all good books that are featuring, well books. Check out this list of 100 Must-Read Books About Books.
Head out to your Milford, MA library to pick up some books, or check out Amazon, or Barnes and Nobles online. For specific book reviews, check out Goodreads.com. What’s your favorite genre? Let us know in the comments and thanks for reading today’s post.
