Hello days of warm weather and long lazy afternoons and gentle breezes and afternoons by the pool and straw hats and sunshine.
I’m so happy you’re here.
Meet my reading list full of books I’ve already started or about to start or books I’m counting the minutes until I begin with Chapter 1….
….and my new way of reading them.

Click on the search button at the top.
You can check out award winning books.
Or the New York Times Best Seller List.
Or what’s brand new to Oyster.
When you click on each book title, there’s a synopsis of the book and more details.
You can add it to your reading list.
There’s also a list of related books (my favorite) that suggest other books similar to the one you just looked at.
After you download the book, a table of contents pulls up.
Simply click on Chapter 1 or scroll down to get started.
The app syncs all your devices together so you never lose your place. I started reading a book on one device and stopped. When I went back later, I started reading it on another device and it pulled up exactly where I left off reading.
I love this way of reading so much I can’t even stand it.
I’ve read and read and read and read and I have so many more books to read.
And just when I thought I couldn’t be any more about Oyster, something happened that made me smile even more.
This is my reading list.
See the book on the very left? It’s called Boxcar Children.
And I didn’t download it.
I didn’t even know it was there until I pulled up my reading list to take a picture.
My daughter saw me reading and decided she needed to download her own book to read.
Like mother. Like daughter.
Let the summer of reading commence. 🙂
