I hope you have been avoiding the news and doing productive and positive things with your lives, like reading lots of wonderful books. My August was packed with uncomfortable plane rides, as I found myself stuck on US Airways (I believe their slogan is, “Hey – you’re lucky you got a seat”). Frequently wedged between two fellow travelers, I escaped the airline’s torment by reading great diversions like Bob Spitz’s terrific tribute Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, Steve Saint’s powerful End of the Spear and the always dependable Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl.
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 September, and enjoy your books!
