Summer is almost here and I am in need of some good summer reader for my break from school. After I say goodbye to my class, I will then say goodbye to my daughters as my older two head to camp. My youngest will be busy during the day and I am determined to head to Barnes & Noble to enjoy my summer reading picks!
Lucky for me, there are tons of fun and exciting events happening at my local Barnes & Noble.
Did you know that Barnes & Noble hosts more than 100,000 events per year, bringing major authors, actors, musicians and other celebrities to our stores across the country. Where else could you meet Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Fallon, Hillary Clinton, Bruce Springsteen, Cameron Diaz, Kim Kardashian and so many more authors for the price of buying their book? I would love a little celebrity time this summer!
I love Kevin Hart and the title of his new book really resonates with me. I Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Life Lessons feels like it was written just for me.
Take a look to see which Barnes & Noble Kevin will be signing books at.
Years ago, I remember spending my summer reading many of John Grisham’s classics. I was happy to see his new title Camino Island available. I think I might just have to go back and pick this one up!
We will be heading back to our local Barnes & Noble often this summer. With one daughter headed to middle school and my older one headed to high school, we need to make summer reading selections. We spent some time taking a look at these inspiring stories for unstoppable girls. Love this!
To get everyone ready for summer reading, I am going to giveaway one $20 Barnes & Noble gift card to a lucky Raising 3 Savvy Ladies reader. This giveaway will expire on June 30th. Don’t delay! Enter today! (Giveaway is open to US residents only.)
To enter, click here to visit the store locator and comment below on which author/event you would be most excited to attend!
