…Start a New Chapter

Summer ReadingHappy post-Olympics’ Monday! While Mondays may be the worst, and a Monday with no Olympics…well that’s unthinkable.

Lucky for you, we’re offering a bit of a distraction this week with some late summer reading suggestions.

I’ll admit, I haven’t read this one in its entirety. So this Lewis Carroll classic is more of a summer reading wish list addition than a summer reading recommendation. But considering its cooky cast of characters and the number of films, television series, and countless other stories it’s inspired, I’m fairly confident it won’t let you down.
