What are you reading this weekend?

Happy Friday! As some of us wrap up the work week and others begin a new one, let's take a moment to sit quietly with a good book -- ahh, a little escape from our own reality and a portal into our protagonists' realities.

Publisher Tracy Million Simmons is making her way through the Kansas Notable Books and is currently reading The Topeka School by Ben Lerner. "This is a great time of year for Kansas readers!" she said. (Dobby agrees.)

Tracy and Dobby in their happy place.

Publicist Linzi Garcia loves to start and finish her week of teaching by reading Meadowlark books in her quiet office. Today, she's neck-deep in the mystery of Opulence, Kansas by Julie Stielstra. This weekend, she'll spend time with Headwinds by Edna Bell-PearsonThe Big Quiet by Lisa D. Stewart, and Valentine by Ruth Maus. "I love where these narrators -- fictional and real -- take me," she said. "I'm always on an adventure."

Linzi is always surrounded by books -- complete and in progress.

What and where are you reading this weekend? Do you read one book at a time, or are there multiple books on your nightstand? Books in the car? In the bathroom? Wherever you may be, we hope you enjoy your reading time!


  1. I'm reading Gloria Zachgo's "Never Waste Tears." I'm enjoying being back in the pioneer days of Kansas. Just took a photo. Where do you post it?

    1. That's great, Jim! I love pioneer days stories and will have to check that book out. It looks like our comments don't allow pictures, but we sure are pleased that you shared this with us!
