I apologize that the site has not been working properly for the past couple of months. This website was originally designed by my good friend, Adam LeVrier, and Adam is the person who has helped me keep the site going (his work has been heroic, and he endured plenty of freaked-out phone calls from me over the years asking him to fix this and that on the site). Now that I am trying to redesign the site, I have managed to hit repeated snags due to my inexperience in web design. Thanks for your patience during this transition, as I am learning web design from scratch (the biggest snag many of you have noticed is that I have not been able to send out the monthly e-mails since June, and I hope to resolve that problem soon).
I have been on the road speaking a lot this summer, and I have completed a lot of my “testosterone” reading. I read just about every Carl Hiaasen book in print that I had not yet opened (if you have not read him yet, you are in for one of my favorite guilty pleasures). I also decided to delve into a few books in The Gunslinger action Western series by J.R. Roberts. Finally, although it is too long to put on this month’s list of book picks, I have to confess that I really enjoyed Tom Vanderbilt’s Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us), but maybe I am just fascinated by the psychology presented in the book.
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful August, and enjoy your books!
