The lazy days of summer are the perfect the time to savor a good book. No matter your age, no matter your preferred position, there is no better time to get comfortable and get lost with a good read.

So far, I've managed to enjoy two books this summer. One, by my favorite summer-read author, Mary Kay Andrews, titled Summer Rental. What about you? Have you found a good book recently? Do you have a favorite title you go back to each summer? Please share with us the title of your favorite summer read in the comments, there's still time to finish another book or two.

Thanks to all photographers listed above for submitting your awesome photos to the Mortal Muses flickr group.I also would like to say a huge thank you to all of the photographers who continue to submit photos to each of the Mortal Muses flickr groups week after week. You are a constant source of amazement and inspiration for me.

Summers used to mean hours and hours of reading for me. Now it's just like the rest of the year - stolen minutes in the morning. I'm still trying to catch up on books I've intended to read for years - right now it's Amy Tan's A Hundred Secret Senses.

Just finished Middlesex - it was given to me and I didn't think I'd like it, but I loved the writing. A lovely collage, and thanks for including one squeaky guinea pig. :)

I was so excited to see my photo in your blog post! It's the first time I've had a photo used and it's perfect that summer reading was the theme. I just finished "Just Kids" by Patti Smith and am reading my guilty pleasure "The Blood Approves" by Amanda Hocking--perfect summer read.
