Summertime reminds me of the beach, road trips and reading.
Recently, I watched The Truth About Creativity on en*theos (an interesting online learning platform). At the end of each interview, David Burkus asked each author what they were reading. The answers were so varied, reminding me that our libraries and brains are curated pieces of art!
