From Kate’s Writing Crate…
If I could plan a summer vacation just for me, it would be a nine-day staycation of nothing but reading.
I’d sort out books I can’t wait to read and stack them in my reading nook.
Every morning, I would choose a book on my way to breakfast. I’d read while crunching on toast. When finished, I would lounge on the couch or the deck depending on the heat and humidity or rain while turning pages at a steady pace with a cool drink of sweet tea on the table.
I would read though all my meals—so many books to get through—and I would end the uninterrupted days reading in bed. I’d finish two or three books a day as I’m a fast reader.
I would also jot in my notebook and even write a bit when inspired, but, mostly, I would just read.
I know this is an impossible dream as there are other people to consider and other things that need doing—feed and walk the dogs, cook, laundry, etc.—but a reader can dream.
