# Monday Must Reads: Volume 44

Post Contents

It’s Monday yet again! That means it’s time to round-up as much of the awesomeness of twitter as possible. I hope you enjoy this peek at what I found inspiring this week. As more and more schools finish for the summer, these posts will likely become more and more infrequent until school starts back up in the fall.
