So, now that April is about halfway done, I think it’s time to mention a few of the best books to read over the summer. Why do people read more in the summer? I guess because school’s out… I seem to read more in the summer as well. Maybe it’s because there are longer daylight hours? Also, summer in Texas wants to kill you, so it’s best to stay indoors…
