Booksie's Shelves, June 23, 2016

June is almost over and summer is in full swing.  Here in NC, a temperature of 99 is predicted for today.  We're in full college preparation mode, having been to orientation last week where I walked six miles in two days in a heat index of 104.  How many weeks till fall?  Still, it is good reading weather as it's time to hunker down inside until fall comes with cooler temperatures. I received book certificates from both Barnes and Nobles and Amazon this week in the Apple settlement so I have plans to make for spending it.  What new books or older books I've held off on will be winging my way shortly?   Here's what's come through the door recently:
