Suzanne (suzannekm) | 76 comments I am having a slow start on Rise to Rebellion, but I think I will keep going. I won't be done by the end of July though. I also want to read Just Mercy in August.

I've read "People of the Book," the Eclectic Readers' August selection so that's just a matter of review. I'll keep checking in and rejoin later.
