Happy 4th of July! Or as I refer to it, the day I get a good cry on to “Proud to Be an American.” Gets me every year. I can be at a BBQ, watching fireworks, in mid-giggles or conversation – doesn’t matter, that song brings me to tears in seconds. So in addition to some emo Lee Greenwood-induced tears, I hope your 4th is filled with friends, fam and Summer Shandy! I’ve rounded up the internet’s best red, white and blue reads for your holiday reading pleasure.
