Things don’t get much better on a summer Sunday afternoon than relaxing on a “chaise lounge” with a good book. I think “chaise lounge” is French for “rest and relaxation.”
It’s easy to set up the chair or chaise lounge in a sunny spot; it’s hard finding a good summer book.
Growing up in Lisbon Falls, I spent a lot of time at the library. Each summer, I would participate in the “Summer Reading Club” and maybe I got a ribbon for reading books. I would have done it for free. I loved the library so much I would sometimes work there for free, too. That’s called “volunteering.”
There were always a few good books kicking around at the library.
During the Moxie Festival, there will be books for sale at the “Friends of the Lisbon Library Book Sale” at the MTM Center at 18 School Street. The MTM Center is actually the old Marion T. Morse School and it’s where I learned how to read. The sale begins on Friday, July 13, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. and runs through Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. You can fill a bag of books for $5. You can even bring your own bag.
This Sunday afternoon, I’m going to relax with a book I picked up at the “Friends of the Lisbon Library” book sale last year, Edith Wharton’s “The Fruit of the Tree.”
You rest, relax, and read today too.
