Last week I got my GINORMOUS and EXTENSIVE reading list for my Oxford University summer program. Perfect timing considering we have less than 2 weeks left of school and this list is loooong. I love reading and without this push I certainly wouldn’t be spending my summer reading these difficult academic books. But here I am, spending the whole month of June doing a deep dive into refugees since 1918 and modern warfare.
