What those who regularly read here already know, Summer is my favorite season of the year. Not only is it a time to wander outdoors bare, unburdened by clothes, but as an professional educator, it’s the time of year with no lessons to prepare or lectures to give. Much of my free time, spent outside, is in the company of a book. Reading mostly for pleasure and not research. Being bare at will and with books in the heat and humidity are the major reasons why I enjoy summers.
Now that Spring is now officially here, it’s time to share the books that I read this past season. Winter isn’t the best time to find a quiet space outdoors, strip off all your clothes and read. True there may be a few moments where the weather is cooperative, the temperatures hover in the moderate range and it is possible to undress and read while comfortably naked. But those times are very few and very far between. Mostly, winter is too blustery and too barren to be bare in nature.
