PhotoBook Journal – #25

Welcome to our 25th Issue •

We are now well into Spring and patiently waiting for Summer to enjoy the holidays as investigated by Ken Rosenthal’s Days On the Mountains. Fingers crossed that this summer might be similar to our distant memories, unlike this past pandemic-haunted summer. We hope that one of the books we reviewed this past month will provide a tease as a potential good read on the beach or wherever you enjoy your holidays.

Please stay healthy and safe. We still need to wear a mask inside, social distance and when provided the opportunity, get your vaccine jab! (I did, twice)
