Reading Roundup Wrapup: June 2016

Pick of the month: Experiment in Autobiography by H. G. Wells. This book consumed my life for the first couple weeks of the month. How could I have ever picked something else? The definitive account of his life, from teaching student to draper's assistant to dabbler in scientific romances to writer of literary fiction to proponent of the World State. Endlessly fascinating. I'll be holding back my review of it until September, though, for Wells's 150th birthday.
