Summer is finally upon us, and I intend to get a lot of reading done at the beach. Just returned from a wonderful week in Colorado with my wife and kids, and I am so grateful to have spent so much time with them. I hope you find plenty of time for your family this summer.
I have been all over the map with the types of longer books I have been reading this past month. I really enjoyed Nudge by Richard Thaler & Cass R. Sunstein, a wonderful book about how people make decisions – filled with great anecdotes and riddles; loved Peter Leonard’s Quiver and cannot believe it is his first book (prediction: everyone will know his name within five years); found Barbara Kingsolver’s latest Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life to be so-so, not nearly as good as Pigs in Heaven; and, although I am still trudging along through it, I absolutely love Doris Kearn Goodwin’s Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.
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 June, and enjoy your books!
