Keep Calm & Read a Book

Featured

Tags

What I’d give to have an extra hour in the day or a little longer lunch break at work to keep reading an enticing book. But, I think that makes reading so much more enjoyable, it is a special part of your day that you can look forward to and be in the moment, letting your imagination take over. The Incessant Bookworm is a place to share love of books – whether it’s reading, crafts, quotes, characters, reflections, you name it! The goal is to keep the art of books and writing alive by conversing with fellow bookworms.

An ‘American’ Afternoon Tea

This past weekend, my mom flew out to visit me! After raving about my adventures in London this past April, I decided to surprise her with an afternoon tea, American-style.

Each summer, the local Borders Bookstores (RIP) had the summer lists ready to go on freshly printed paper for each grade and school in the area. I loved perusing the stacks laid out on the tables for the special occasion. No longer in that age, I find myself wondering what that looks like to encourage reading throughout the summer and long break between school.

Whether it is putting off a few pages to do laundry, or setting aside several reads in favor of the great outdoors, or just not feeling in the mood to read about someone else’s life. It happens more times than I would like to admit, unfortunately! It’s like some of my colleagues in education say at the end of the school year when it is time to say goodbye or see you later to our students – we can’t miss you unless you’re gone.
