  1. I finished Strength In Numbers yesterday. I read 6 of the 8 chapters in one day! So good! I’ve got so many books I want to read this summer. Maybe I should make my own list to keep me focused!

    • I have to have accountability. So this is my commitment! I read first 2 chps pretty quickly…Great stuff but with state EOCS, finals and wrapping up, I was afraid it would make me want to try something new with no time to reflect/adjust.
