Ask the Forum: What We’re Carrying, Reading, and Listening to

Feature image: Coyote Swift by kkintea.

This summer, we were curious about what members of the Forum were up to.  Among other things, we asked what bags they were carrying, books they were reading, and music they had in their rotation.  We got back lots of great responses, and wanted to share some with you.

If you’ve got a long weekend heading your way, or if you’re trying to hold on to just a few more lazy days and want something to read or listen to and relax, check out these suggestions.

And if what you read here has you feeling inspired, hop on over to the Forum for more.
