Books & Writing: Summer News

Posted by @Publishing_talk on July 19, 2014 at 6:05 AM

Summer is the perfect time for relaxing outdoors with a good book and an ice-cold beverage. We've given it some thought and concluded that there are, in fact, pros and cons to this...




PROS

 

Good for you. A brain massage that's pleasurable and makes you smarter.

  • Switch off. A really good book is pure escapism.
  • Portable. Books can be taken virtually anywhere.
  • Sociable. Books can provoke interesting discussion, and sometimes they can even help break the ice in social situations.

 

CONS

 

  • Antisocial. Ok, so a particularly absorbing read can sometimes cause withdrawal from human contact.
  • Binge reading. The reason your personal hygiene has lapsed and your eyes look like roadmaps.
  • Regret. Finishing a book when:

           - you felt you ought to, but wished you didn't.

           - you wished it would never end but of course it had to.

 

Our books list is growing! We have some great reads forthcoming, including some for when the weather is colder. More here
