I hope you are all doing well. I just enjoyed a day of taking my kids to the beach and then to the pool. My little ones are growing so quickly, and I am treasuring these moments while they still want me in their lives. I have also been busily constructing my wife’s Mother’s Day gift, and we are all vacationing in Colorado at the end of the month.
I always get the bulk of my reading done on planes (or hanging out at a Border’s for a day), and I took a lot of planes this last month. I decided to tackle some thicker books that I have been meaning to read, including Tony Horwitz’s excellent A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World, Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation by Cokie Roberts (she is such a gifted woman herself – I miss her on Sunday mornings) and the compelling Standing Tall: A Memoir of Tragedy and Triumph by Rutgers women’s basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer. If you have not noticed, I really like biographies, memoirs and other nonfiction.
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 May, and enjoy your books!
