Between the summer I worked full time, which was immediately followed by an out of state move, then another move the very next summer, this is the first summer in three years I’ve been able to plan another bookworm party.
A big stack of books, mystery lines pulled from them, fun treats. Teens having a decision-making role in their own education. (Let’s not forget that last part.)
That’s how I get my Type A game on. I invest in having fun, not in dictating what they must read.
Why do I do this? Put my time and energy into planning something like this for high schoolers?
Because time is short but memories are long.
Because love feels like someone thinking of you, of planning ways to surprise you.
Because home should be a place where fun happens.
Because books are worth it, damn it.
