It’s that rare moment in Seattle called, “summer.” That means — shorts and the annual airing of the knees! To celebrate, we thought we would offer some selected shorts: short, sometimes books for a quick summer read before the cloud-cover comes back. Not the usual summer reading perhaps, but then ours is not the typical summer here in the Northwest.
