It's hard to believe that it's already August. By this time next month, I'll be back to slowly chipping away at grad school a few classes at a time, and won't be reading as much for fun.
I'm currently reading The Library Book by Susan Orlean. This well-researched book tells the story of the catastrophic fire that devastated the Los Angeles Public Library in 1986. At the time, it was largely overshadowed in the national news by the Chernobyl disaster. I highly recommend this book to all you library/history nerds out there.
