Where has the month gone? It is hard to believe that summer is here. So far this year, I have read some great books. Last week, I finished All the Light We Can Not See by Anthony Doerr and this week I started Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help. You may know Amanda Palmer from her TED talk The Art of Asking or her record breaking Kickstarter campaign where she raised over 1 million dollars to record her album. I am going to write a full review once I finish it, but if you are looking for an inspiring book for an artist in your life, be sure to check it out.

Have a great week and here are some posts to check out this week.
