Summer's almost here! And summer means...

...summer means reading!

Well, reading outside, more specifically. Getting out of the house and away from distractions and finding a quiet spot under a tree somewhere where you can just get lost in a book...

"Are people going to read Proust and make a living at the same time? No. Not ordinary people. Ordinary people are going to wait until they are at the beach, and the phone is not constantly ringing off the hook, and the only discouraging word is the sound of gulls squawking overhead. [...] The thing to do is set the summer aside, quite firmly, for all that heavy reading you have been meaning to get around to."

(From _Where Books Fall Open: A Reader's Anthology of Wit & Passion_, p.5.)
