Sunday Reads

After a week of gray, rain, grayer, snow, and even more gray, the sun is finally out. The snow has melted, and its gorgeous out. Time to take the two seater out for a ride, and enjoy the weather!

Meanwhile, I have several good reads from the past few days that are worth pouring a cup of coffee and spending some time with before the weekend is over:
