Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
This is always an atypical time of year for my reading life. There are two weeks during the year when I read more than at any other time in my life: our summer week at the beach and the week between Christmas and New Year’s.
I often use this winter reading time to vet tons of potential Summer Reading Guide titles, but this year I wanted my winter break reading to not feel like work. I decided to read books I had no need to read—and for me that looked like my favored urban planning books and lots of backlist. You’ll see both reflected in today’s round-up.
I hope you’ve enjoyed some good books lately as well. Please tell us all about your recent reads in comments.
