Wow, that's a lot of reading! One book a week. How do you find the time with Theo and your full time job and with your commute!

When school is out, my commute is only 20 minutes each way. There's plenty of time for reading when I'm not driving to Manoa in rush hour three times a week or trying to keep up with school-related readings and assignments.

It was truly a great summer.
