What I Did on my Summer Vacation

Books I Recommend

Since I’m always in search of new and interesting books to read, this will be a list of the books I’ve read over the course of each month that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. I do not plan to put every book I read up here–only the ones I’d recommend to others. Many of the books I read are crap, anyway. 🙂 They’ll be sorted by the date I read them.
