Well, we’ve made it through dreadful May and we’re ready to start our summer! I can’t believe I’m writing about the summer reading for 2019, it seems just a minute ago I wrote the summer reading list for 2018. We’ll be jetting off to Southern California soon, so I know I’ve got to get my…

My latest book club read was the book Kindred by Octavia Butler.  We selected this book because I saw Indy Reads Books shared it on their Facebook page as their February book of the month. I didn’t know much about it, but my book club decided to give it a chance. The whole point of…
