Edwards Book Club Celebrates Another Year
|May 1, 2018||Posted by admin under Uncategorized|
Edwards Book Club is celebrating another year!
Well here we are. Another year in business. Doing what we all love to do: read. In the last 12 months, our reviewers have completed 28 reviews on books ranging from thrillers and crime to fantasy and fiction to romance and biographies. Since 2012, this means Edwards Book Club has completed 203 reviews. And we are not finished yet …
But let’s face it: life can be busy. It often feels like there are not enough hours in the day to do all that we need to do. Reading is one of those beloved pastimes that can take a hiatus when we are occupied with work, raising families, maintaining a home, studying, exercising, volunteering (and the list goes on).
As we enter the month of May and spring feels like it has sprung (or at least it is trying), there is a sense of renewal and increasing energy all around. And we all know what follows spring: the much anticipated season of summer. For many of us, this means vacation … taking time off to relax, explore and spend time with loved ones. Sometimes, we are lucky to travel to fun, warm, or exotic locations. But when that is just not possible, books can be like our very own “crazy carpet” taking us to faraway places even if only for an afternoon or night.
I hope as the weather turns warmer and the days a little longer, you are able to take your crazy carpet ride – to places that feel fun, warm, and exotic. There are so many wonderful books that have the power to do just that. So pick up that book, open the cover and let the story help you escape, relax, and unwind.
Have a safe, happy, and peaceful time heading into the warmer months. Enjoy time with family, with friends, with you, and with books.
Sending a BIG “THANK YOU” to all publishers, authors and reviewers who have contributed to Edwards Book Club over the last 6 years. Your time and resources are what makes Edwards Book Club go around. I am looking forward to another great year of continuing our love affair with books.
