I have signed up my kids for as many summer reading programs I could get my hands on this summer because this is the summer that we are focusing on getting Delbert to where he can read almost anything handed to him. We did the same thing to Jimmy during his summer before he started 2nd grade. By the end of the summer, he was able to read anything given to him. That was also the summer he grew to appreciate reading with a passion. Delbert already has a passion for reading, but he’s struggled with learning to read.
This year though our library also created an adult reading program too. I actually checked books out at the library this time. (I have so many books on my Kindle account that I really didn’t need to check out any books.) However, seeing the books on the shelf I just couldn’t resist. I got the book, [easyazon_link identifier=”0130504262″ locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]I’ll Be Seeing You[/easyazon_link].

I honestly questioned why I got it to start with, but after I started reading the first couple of pages I was completely glad that I got it. It’s a historical fiction (not my normal genre to read at all.) It is composed of letters between three women primarily with a bit of letters from the men in the war. The letters are very interesting. I love that they even shared some recipes with each other too complete with how to cook them.
Have you ever heard of Orange Fudge or Beer Bread? I haven’t heard of either. They both sounded pretty interesting. There are other recipes too that sound like they are worth trying.
I highly recommend this book. It will take you to another time and place. Right now, I need a lot of that myself.
What is a good book I need to add to my to-read list for my summer reading?

Sounds good! I love historical fiction (escapism, with backstabbing and gorgeous clothes!) and will definitely check this out.
I can’t say there’s any backstabbing in this book, but it is a great read. It’s back when people still wrote hand letters and shared as many details of their life as possible.
It sounds great! My sister would adore it. Am definitely going to check it out…and I love that they added recipes. :)-Ashley
I’m confident she would enjoy reading it too. The recipes are definitely unique.
