It’s hot out there.
Here in the Greater Toronto Area, which is not typically known for its hot weather, we’re experiencing temperatures around 32°C, but with a humidex of at least 40°C. And it will be that way for at least three long days.
There are various schools of thought on how to deal with this kind of heat, at least from a reader’s perspective. I’m a fan of cranking the a/c and “thinking cold”; the novel on my nightstand right now takes place in the Arctic. (More on that one in a future post.) But I know there are all kinds of ways to handle the heat. What’s your style?
Whatever you do to beat the heat, let me offer up a selection of summer reads to accompany you while you do it.
