There are so, so many new releases to be excited about, and the fact that I have a big pile of them on hand makes the sixteen ...

READING ACROSS THE COUNTRY MAINE
by Leila Roy

One of the funny things about living in a state nicknamed ‘Vacationland’—especially living near the coast—is that, for locals, a huge part of summertime is about avoiding the tourist-heavy spots. You know, like the beach.
