Hot August Reads? Hardly.

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
I thought The Happiness Project might be a nice distraction from my super focused concentration on getting ready for Art in the Park this month. But it boiled down to a half-baked self-help book with not much substance.

The Last Cyclist by David Herlihy
Frank Lenz was going to cycle the world. In the spring of 1892 he quit his accounting job and gamely set out to cover twenty thousand miles over three continents as a correspondent for Outing magazine. Two years later, as he was approaching the final leg of the journey somewhere in Turkey, he disappeared. Great story line, right? Unfortunately the first half was slow-slow-slow. The story gets much better once William Sachtleben (another cyclist) sets out to discover what happened to Lenz.
