I’m so tired. ALA was exhausting. But I am really, really pleased with the books I picked up there and cannot wait to read them. I won’t be working in July, so I look forward to doing little else but that. As for this month in reading, not much to say except I’m still working on managing stress, and that kept me from reading more.
