Summer reading

When I think of summer reading, not matter where I am, I think of a garden spot, a bench in a park, overlooking water or perhaps a mountain range. I want to submerge myself in the story and when I look up I am going to dream!
I imagine myself curling up here...

Looking out to there...

Reading this...

Or that...

And that bench invites me to indulge a little in English reading...

While that chair reminds me of these books:

And these must be read here:

I just started my summer reading off with Elizabeth Goudge's Scent of Water! Oh, what a delight!
And may these books and all your reading desire last for a whole wonderful long summer!
Wishing you hours under a tree in a shady spot for reading, napping and... what ever else you like doing on a bench...

  1. We have a hammock for Summer reading and napping!

  2. I have a lovely rocking chair, whereby I read. It faces the backyard, so when I look up, I see my flower garden. I am very grateful.

  3. Oooh, that chair reminds me of books too, as I LOVE to read at the beach! Happy Summer Reading!

  4. I agree. Being attached to nature in some way is great when reading. I've started The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas. I know it's a classic but I haven't read it yet!

  5. thank you for the list, I'm always looking for a good book to have by my bedside table!

  6. My dear, you always choose a lovely selection of books which go well with the furniture for comfort xxx

  7. So many books to read so little time!
    Love your suggestion list!

    from the other side of the world :)

  9. Sorry, with "from the other side of the world" I meant Germany :)

    By the way I have found your blog through my search for German Chandelier Manufacturers... We need a huge one for a luxury shop in Berlin ;)


  10. what a romantic post!

    just passing by your blog and i have to say i LOVE it. do come drop by mine too and maybe we can follow each other. =)

  11. I adore books and reading - it cultivates the miond. Must remember to read "The Lady and the Poet" - a friend recently suggested I read this.
    Such happy pictures, sweetie;-)

  12. To you all, thank you for you kind responses, I could not exist without books....
    Books do cultivate the mind and they have taught me more then I can say. They are my continous education, pleasure, entertainment and I have a hard time not to share my enthusiasm. I just cannot squeeze in another blog, dedicated to books alone, as much as I am tempted!
    And I guess it fit's in to a graceful life style blog...
