Summer Kickoff Feature





What is my “Summer Kickoff” Feature?
 
Being a self-proclaimed beach bum and all around beach lover, I thought I would start a new feature for the month of May, which happens to be one of my favorite months.  May is the unofficial start of summer! My “Summer Kickoff” feature lasts throughout the summer and it is a lot of fun!  My hope is that you will find a good book to throw in your beach bag with you this summer. Below you will see highlights and "best of" posts from each year.
