Summer Reading List – 12 Books to Start My Summer

I read. A lot. Probably more than I should. (But the pros and cons of my reading addiction are a topic for another day.)

The subject of Books I’m Reading has come up in multiple conversations over the past few weeks, so I thought I’d share (an incomplete) list of the book-worlds I plan to immerse myself in this summer.
