Recommended Reads is back this week, although the pick list has some items from the last couple of weeks. We were on an Alaskan cruise and the ship’s internet was very spotty, or not working at all in Glacier Bay National Park and the fjords for a lot of the time. Saving a post for future reading was about all I could manage.
