2023 Summer Reading List: Yours
Forget what Christmas crooner Andy Williams says: for book nerds, this is the most wonderful time of the year. When I come across a post of what everyone will be reading at the beach, I stop. I ponder. Sometimes I order. Occasionally I’ll judge.
Later this week, I’ll post the list of what I’m reading, but for today, I’d like to offer up ten titles that you should consider. These are ten that I’ve read sometime in the last year that I think deserve a spot on your shelf or some bytes in your Kindle. (Do we still do bytes? Discuss.)
