I didn't really get a chance to catch up on reading the books I wanted to. And Summer is almost over. But on the bright side, I did get a chance to catch up on some blogs that were new to me. They're worth checking out if you haven't done so already.

Summer's not over yet, so if you haven't checked out any of these—then bust out the wireless, your favorite lawn chair and camp out in the back yard for as long as your battery lets you. (Dell owners, do so at your own risk)
