I Put a Pin in Suggested Reading

images-1.jpgI have recommended reading selections each month for the first half of the year and it’s time to go back through the lists and select a representation of recommendations that I’ll use to build my August reading list. I did this once before and it was effectively introduced me to some wonderful reading as well as keeping me honest and grounded in the books I recommend each month.

Here is the list for June 0f 2018. Now I must look back from  January through June to create next month’s reading pool.
