Summer Reading List


Confession: I haven't been reading in 2017 nearly as much as I've wanted to. Somehow, whenever the opportunity presents itself for me to read, I lean towards podcasts I need to catch up on or feel the urge to shuffle through my thousands of songs to find a bop to rock out to. Either way, a book doesn't present itself to me, and neither do their pages.
