Maybe you're pining for fall already, and a break from heat and smoke.
But we've got long, warm days and maybe even a little time off from work. That's the reason summer is so conducive to a little extra reading. Or a lot, if we're lucky.
Our Summer Reads segment is back for a second summer, visiting with local and locally-owned bookstores to get ideas for good summertime reads.
Oregon Books and Games and The Rogue Reader, twin stores in Grants Pass, are the latest independent book stores to check in with some items for your reading consideration.
