Dear Reader July 2018

Dear Reader,

The enthusiasm barometer for reading goes off the charts in the summer. People walk into BookHampton asking us for the "best summer reads." Magazines, newspapers, blogs, and Instagram abound with both general and highly focused summer reading lists. And one of our most favorite customers, Jimmy Fallon, just launched a book club, Tonight ShowSummer Reads. In the summer we allow ourselves the time and space to read books. We grant ourselves more freedom to relax with a good book, or two, or three. I love seeing both adults and kids walk out of the store with armfuls of books.

You may be wondering what's on my summer reading list? I've recently mentioned a number of really worthy books in my past two newsletters and here is my updated list of summer reads:
