Summer Reading List 2.0

Well, it’s that time of the year. Or is it?

Many people had hopes that they will flock to the beach this summer. However, the recent pandemic may put a damper on your plans. Yet, I plan to share a list like there is no third world problem. We must be willing to take risks in life. That is what life is about. Whether you decide to go to the shore, the lake, mountains, or lock yourself down in the comfort of your backyard, you might want to consider take something to read with you.

Before I share this year’s list, here is a link to my post last yearon the summer reading list here.
