Hi Y’all! I am so excited to see that summer has finally arrived.  The biggest reason?  Summer reading!  I think almost everyone I know uses summer as an excuse to dust off the bookshelves and grab those books that we have been putting off.  In the blogsphere world, summer is also the signal of amazing tours with giveaways, book exchanges, and reading groups.  Here are just a few of the really fun events going on in the blogsphere.  I hope to see you out there enjoying them!
