Bookworm: May 2015

"My shorthand answer is that I try to write the kind of book that I would like to read. If I can make it clear and interesting and compelling to me, then I hope maybe it will be for the reader." -David McCullough

May offered me the perfect opportunity to bookworm out...two eight-hour flights to/from Paris! I also love taking advantage of my building's gorgeous rooftop space to head up, soak up some sun, and plow through a book (or two) on nice afternoons. I did keep it light this month, though, after reading David McCullough's spellbinding "The Greater Journey" on the way home from Paris...most of these selections are geared at young adult readers, and were just light and fluffy enough to plow through in an afternoon.
