My Monday Pinterest Pick

"There is no friend as loyal as a book"...Ernest Hemingway

I would love to hear what you are reading this summer.
I keep hearing about Fifty Shades of Grey.  Have you read it?

Do you read e-books or good old fashion printed books...or both?
Research suggests more people are reading because of e-books.
At this time, printed books still leading in the consumer market.
Here's a good article if you're interested.

We are back at the cottage after spending time with family and friends.  I look forward to sharing some of my adventures with you in posts to come.  Have a great Monday.

I've read 7 books since school got out and am loving it, that's all I want to do. Lori and I are going away for 5 days at a place where it's 106 degrees but there are 4 pools! I'm planning to read in the shade (must maintain my pasty white legs) taking breaks only to cool off and refill my beverage.

I have definitely jumped on the bandwagon and am currently reading Fifty Shades! BUT I'm still sticking to actual physical books and not e-books. Although I must say, I would be a lot less shameful about reading Fifty Shades on the bus everyday if I had it on a Kindle or Nook ;)

I love reading. Not sure which books I am going to read this summer though. I have hear of fifty shades of grey but haven't read it...yet. I'm saving up for a kobe ereader since I already have such a heavy school bag, and real books are killing my back.

Lately I'm reading all photography books. But I keep hearing about Fifty Shades of Grey too. Sounds interesting.

I've read 50 Shades. I can't say it was my favorite. But I am currently reading The History of Love...which I am really loving.

I have not started 50 shades of grey yet but literally EVERYONE is talking about it. My sis has all 3 books which she is lending to me too. Anxious to start them! I just finished Sarah's Key and while it was sad.. it really was a fabulous book. Definitely recommend that if you haven't read yet. And Tina Fey's Bossy Pants was hysterical. Happy reading!

Love that quote. Thanks for sharing :) I honestly prefer old fashioned printed books! I'm old school. ;)
