Read of the Month, July 2010

Greetings, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  I am so happy to be finished with my June read, uggghhh a text book, can it get any worse?  For the month of July I decided to try a recommendation from "Anonymous" last month, The Lion's Game by Nelson DeMille.  This will be the first book I have ever read by DeMille.  I read some of the brief descriptions on Amazon and the book sounds like a great summer read.  It appears DeMille has a number of books out, so if I enjoy this title, I may have many more to choose from.  I plan to order the book tonight, and thanks to my Amazon Prime account it should be here by Monday morning.  I will going with the paperback version, because this may turn out to be a beach read during July.  So, what is your read for the month of July?  Anyone going to pick up Eclipse now that the film has been released?  I hear the Meyer books are great, but I have yet to read any of them.

One side note, I would like to give a "shout out" the Allen Park Board of Education. It is nice to see that two media specialists positions have been restored.  I realize these are difficult times for many local school districts, but with the importance of reading, cutting these positions is not a helpful move for any school district.  I still have hope that Gibraltar will restore our fine Media Specialist at Shumate Middle School before we start back in the fall.
