Bookfest Friday

Happy Birthday to me today! (Literally.:) To celebrate, I went on a hike with some of my favorite people. Waterfalls + early morning temperatures = awesome. Thank you, brothers, for coming into town. We love you!


In this blog, you will find my past six weeks of Bookfest Friday summer reading!

First, the video, where I tell in a sentence (or two) what I loved (or didn't love) about each book.

12 books. 3 minutes. Boo-yah.

After the vid, you will find the book list itself.

And below that, a picture of the books (and my kindle) all stacked up. Why? Because it makes me feel accomplished to have all my reading displayed in one place.
