Reading List – Second Quarter 2017

This quarter I have spent somewhat less time online in my attempt to create a life less busy, and I hope to write about that experience soon. In the meantime, here is my second quarter reading list for 2017. The links are to articles that I have shared on either Facebook, Twitter or both during the past few months.
