Both Judy and JR Wright are lifelong readers, and both enjoy an array of reading material.

Judy’s favorite authors have included John Grisham, Stuart Woods, Mary Higgins Clark, Sidney Sheldon and Anne Rivers Siddons.

“Now I mostly read educational and Bible study books, along with the Bible,” she said.

JR has formerly read books by authors Ken Follett, Mark Frost and Eric Larson, and enjoys history and historical fiction.

When asked to name their favorite books, JR said he didn’t have any particular book or books he would select. Judy, however, had a couple of choices.

“The Bible and anything that furthers my education in the world of Scuba diving,” she said.

Unlike other folks who switch out their serious reading for beach reads, the Wrights tend to stick with the books they’ve begun.

“I usually take what I’m reading at home to the beach, along with my Scuba magazines,” she said.

For JR beach reading consists of faith-based books, books about golf and “The Rotary Magazine.”

Currently, Judy is reading “Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God Speaks,” by Priscilla Shirer, and “Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind and Soul” by Ruth Soukup. Her every day reading includes “Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children” by Jodie Berndt.

JR also reads more than one book at a time. Currently, his list includes “Doing Life With Your Adult Children: Keep Your Mouth Shut and the Welcome Mat Out” by Jim Burns, “The Game: Harvard, Yale and America in 1968” by George Howe Colt and “12 Keys to an Effective Church” by Kennon Callahan.

The Wrights’ beach bag, according to Judy includes a mask and snorkel for swimming laps, magazines, headphones, an iPod, telephone, Yeti cup, personal beverages, snacks and gum.

The Sea Island Beach Club is the couple’s favorite spot for fun in the sun.
