Welcome to July, which I've dubbed A Month of Adventure! What better time to explore new places and experiences than the height of summer? Let's start off with Wind, Sand and Stars (Harcourt, 2002; orig. 1939) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Ever since I first read his classic Le Petit Prince in French class, I've wanted to read more by this extraordinary author. I picked up a copy of this little volume years ago and somehow never got round to reading it. My used copy got so dusty and decrepit that I replaced it with a better one. And now I'm finally going to read it, spurred on by my own recent flying adventures.
