Does Summer Change Your Reading Habits?
By Terry Odell

When I lived in Florida, summer (for me) was the time to stay inside and take advantage of the air conditioning. I used to liken it to being snowed in. Both conditions lend themselves to more time to read.

Summer can be a time to relax and to travel. Schoolchildren might have summer reading books assigned, but for most of us, we’re free to pick and choose what we want to read. Lighter “beach reads” are popular. And for traveling, there are audiobooks.

I’m delighted that Pamela Almand (The Captain’s Voice) finished recording the third of my Triple-D Ranch books, In Dire Straits. She did another great job. It’s a perfect beach read, or a traveling “listen.”

Want to hear a sample? I’ve got one on my website.

Share your summer reading habits. More time to read? Less time because the kids are home? Do you read the same kind of books as the rest of the year? Leave a comment, and I have a download code for the audiobook version of In Hot Water, the first book in the Triple-D Ranch series, so you can start at the beginning.
