All of us here at tp.com want to wish all of you a happy first day of summer and a happy longest day of the year (at least all of you in the northern hemisphere). Get out there and soak up that sunlight. (Don't forget the sunscreen.) A change of season also means a new banner image at the site. More flowers, more sky, more bugs. Or are those butterflies flitting around there?
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
