Today is reading day, and lots of you are here in the library studying away. Your mantra to get your through your last final is "it's almost summer!" The heat is practically here, the sun's shining, and summer is so close we can taste it!
In honor of summer, I thought I'd put a list of summer-themed scores, books, LPs, and CDs. Maybe they'll help make the time pass as you study.
