20 Books of Summer



Tuesday will be my first, official day of summer vacation: seventy one days where I don't have to wake up before the crack of dawn or wear real pants.  This year, from June 16 to August 26 I will be reading twenty books-- some to prepare for the new school year, some for fun, some to finally cross off of my TBR-- and will be charting my progress here on TLD.
