May Reading Wrap-Up

May started out slowly, but turned out to be quite a satisfying reading month. There was diversity in the genres, subjects, and formats of the books that I read...from poetry to a hilarious memoir, to some hard-hitting non-fiction.  I thoroughly enjoyed each and every book, and hope that you might be inclined to pick up one of these for yourself.
