I am on the road speaking a lot this June, which means I have carry-ons filled with books (no, I have not purchased a Kindle yet). This past month I focused on reading some of my favorite authors: Janet Evanovich, Sebastian Junger, Scott Turow and Greg Mortensen. I also began my annual crusade to read the Classics I fake-read in school (you know, Jane Austen does not have to fight zombies to be interesting). As I will be traveling to Ireland next month, I hope to finally find James Joyce to be readable. One longer book (370 pages) that I found to be fascinating was Merchants of Doubt by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway (fascinating look at contrarian scientists).
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!
