It stands to reason that many of you who are reading our paper also enjoy reading in general. I’m also betting that lots of you are gearing up for a big summer vacation which, hopefully, will give you lots of leisure time to read.

Hope you find a favorite among them. Special thanks to local author Carolyn Ezell for her recommendations of local authors and Vince Bellofatto with the Tuscaloosa Public Library for including some great choices for kids and teens.
