I've read Sarah Dessen's beach-perfect summer high school book Along for the Ride and I'm re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (#6) right now. I read the travel memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed while traveling (I was on planes, she was on the Pacific Crest Trail, but hey). But reviews will have to wait... I lag behind in everything but the coming tenure papers, which I work on daily now that the biggest chunk of summer travel is done. In the meantime, here are some intriguing links.
