New Serials: June 2021

· 06/05/2021 · Michael Schmitt

Whew, it's been a while! After a break for rest and family, I've been adding more books to Serial Reader.

Previously I tried to highlight new books on a weekly basis but that cadence got away from me, so going forward I'm going to try a monthly blog post that I'll update as new books arrive. The latest titles from June 2021 are listed below, including Rabindranath Tagore's autobiography, an eerie prediction of the Titantic's sinking, Helen Keller's autobiography, P.T. Barnum's exploration of "humbugs," and more.

Happy reading!
