Here are the links to the summer releases I mentioned at "Fresh Ink 4 Summer" at Parmly Library. Not all books are a good fit for all readers; some books tackle subjects or use language that might make you feel uncomfortable. But don't be shy--look around, check them out, you might find the perfect book for you.
I plan to do another post like this one to feature the books released this fall. Don't forget to visit and see what's up...
And remember to check out the 10'ers.
