Monthly Reads: July

Lots of travel this month not so much reading. It happens sometimes. I had two fourteen four flight during which I could have been reading, but I just didn't have the attention span for it. I watched, like, an entire season of Chopped. Excellent use of time, Tara. Anyhow, here are the books I did get to.
