Mt TBR Report: July 2021

The more I read, the more I want to read. Which is to say that Mt TBR keeps slowly creeping upward. It was an interesting mix of stuff this month. There’s fanfic alongside some heavier philosophy and memoir. A couple of Lodestar nominees. And I seem to be on a bit of an audio binge. […]
