Thanks to Soraya Murray and Derek Murray for suggesting the perfect solution: an open call to ask all of you to share the titles of books that are you have been wanting to read. Similar to what Art Journal is doing in their “OPEN BOOKSHELF project,” this month we ask our subscribers to
>gather their favorite titles together. List the grouping and bibliographic information to share but also tell us a why they are your top picks. Are they inspiring a new research project, or a new project? Or perhaps the title is just something you want to read for pleasure. Make sure to change the subject line in your post to read BOOKSHELF: YOUR NAME.

We had to schedule the meeting for promptly at nine because he explained that there was no Wi-Fi or phone service except in the main building’s library. Every morning after his early breakfast at the residency he heads to the library to spend his early hours of the day reading. What an inspiring luxury and one that I think I might appropriate for summer myself. Happy reading everyone.
