#SOL21: Summer






That covers some possible goals.




A park.

A revisit to a favorite location.


Salt water.


My summers always include book clubs of some sort.

Usually multiple book clubs.

My favorite is BookLove Summer Book Club.

Here is the speaker line up

With access for an entire year.

46 speakers and counting.


YES, you

Control your schedule.

Participate at your convenience.

Book packages are sold out, but you can still join online.

Book Love Foundation


Because all the money raised from the Book Club funds classroom libraries.

What are your summer plans? A book club? Which one? What will you read? What will you write?


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum.

Check out the writers and readers here.

    Summer Love Foundation is such an easy thing to support. I mean, I’m gonna be reading anyway, right? Yes to the beach. I have three weeks of bliss planned for two different beaches in June and I can’t wait! It is nearly time to start unfreezing my library holds.

  2. The nice thing about summer, and retirement in general, is that plans are flexible and can change on a whim. Reading and writing are always a part of summer’s activities, as well as fall’s, winter’s, and spring’s. I have never joined a book club, but strongly support anything that gets books into schools and the hands of students.

    1. Yes, to Reading and Writing being year round FUN!

    I’m probably the only teacher who doesn’t have “reading” on her summer bucket list! I’ll be doing a lot of WRITING instead! Enjoy the countdown until your summer begins! It is SOON!

    1. Well, I would bet that while you are writing, you will also be reading your work!!!
      And yes, SOON!!!

    This really sounds like a busy, happy, wonderful summer to me! I have two book clubs planned, two grad school courses, and a lot of grandchildren time!

  5. I love Book Love and hope I can retrieve the books from the list that I already own from my classroom by then… I will take two classes and have a stack of pd books on deck. Likely no travel this summer, but time is the gift I will give to myself:)
