Riot Headline 10 Exciting Books to Read this Summer

Bookends for Mother’s Day Gifts

Wallace Yovetich

Staff Writer

Wallace Yovetich grew up in a home where reading was preferred to TV, playing outside was actually fun, and she was thrilled when her older brothers weren’t home so she could have a turn on the Atari. Now-a-days she watches a bit more TV, and considers sitting on the porch swing (with her laptop) “playing outside”. She still thinks reading is preferable to most things, though she’d really like to find out where her mom put that old Atari (Frogger addicts die hard). She runs a series of Read-a-Longs throughout the year (as well as posting fun bookish tidbits throughout the week) on her blog, Unputdownables. After teaching for seven years, Wallace is now an aspiring writer.

If mom is a reader, maybe getting her something besides good ol’ lotion and bubble bath this year might be a happy surprise. You could even get her a few books to go with them, but really these bookends are so fantastic they’re enough on their own.
