Summer Pastimes

With all the relaxing, it is easy to neglect certain things but, best for the day you must come back to reality if you do not. During the summer we may forget to stay on top of our reading. Reading for pleasure is a terrific way to relax yes, but it also helps to exercise the brain. Don’t forget to pick up a couple summer reads this year at the local bookstore.
