In the Books

This school year is in the books for some and soon will be for many. With this brings about a much needed break from the day to day of a school year like no other. I do know that as much as I look to disconnect for a bit to recharge, come those couple weeks before school starts, I am looking to get in that back to school zone as a new school year nears. When I am doing some things outside around the house, I’ll put on one of my favorite podcasts in the headphones. When I am kicking my feet up for a few, I’ll dig into a book that I haven’t explored or maybe one I’ve had sitting around and want to revisit. So, as you put this year in the books, maybe you’ll find an idea or some inspiration…”in the books.” With this, if you’re looking for a book to check out this summer, here are a few that I’ve either personally reviewed upon inquiry from the author or publisher, or contributed to in some way, and am throwing out there for you to explore. I might be a bit biased though ; )

In the end, these are some great reads from some great people. Check them out. They don’t disappoint.
