Two books that I am hoping to finish this summer (managed to buy them after searching for about 20 years!)
The Crest of the Peacock - George Joseph
The Man who knew Infinity - Robert Kanigel

The FRQs look very straight forward - waiting to hear what my kids have to say about them.

Enjoy a restful summer everybody! See you in the fall.
