My Summer Reading List

My Summer Reading List

I’m hitting the road again tomorrow. Hard to believe, I know. After a summer that’s included a trip to Israel, a week at the beach in North Carolina and an amazing couple of days in NYC. One thing I haven’t had a lot of this summer? Time to read. Again, hard to believe what with...

It was really great to be bleeding excessively, be jet-lagged and sharing a bed with my kicking, sideways-sleeping daughter....
