July 2019 reading wrap-up

“Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.” – Mortimer J. Adler

I notice that I manage to read more when there’s extreme weather. Extreme heat makes me sit outside all day in the shade, book in hand and a cold drink. There has been a heatwave in the past month, with temperatures that made it impossible to stay inside and almost impossible to stay outside as well. The most productive I managed to get, was to read books.
