Well, the summer isn't quite over yet (although I am looking forward to fall), but I do have a favorite summer read. I recently read a biography called Elizabeth and Philip, about Queen Elizabeth of England and the Duke of Edinburgh. It was really interesting. She's been on the throne forever, and although many have questioned why she hasn't abdicated in favor of Prince Charles, it's pretty clear that is not going to happen. Her duty is to her people.
It was really a fascinating book and knowing more about her makes her seem a bit more human and less a figurehead.
