September is my birthday month! I’m finally turning 30 and still trying to figure out exactly what that means. It leads me to want to read stories on renewal and taking charge. I read because I enjoy it, but to also get inspired. We’ve gathered some interesting finds debuting this month. There really is something for everyone.
