Every year we say that, and every year it's just as true as before. Of course sitting back with a good book is a pleasure at any time, but summer brings vacations and long, hot, lazy days of relaxation, and nothing goes better with them than a terrific book.
And a great book can take you places no travel agent can. You can meet up with the hunk of your dreams or take a walk on the wild side. Take a trip to cajun country and then drop back in time to the 1800's and peek into the window of a Regency ball. Ride the waves on a schooner in search of a missing heiress and then open the pages to a cozy mystery or a chilling thriller.
The time to start stocking up on great summer reads is now. You'll want to have several on hand for lounging on the beach or while making your way to the Bahamas. And, of course, you'll want to keep one tucked in your purse at all times for those unexpected moments of summer freedom--like when the next door neighbor offers to take your kids and hers to the park, leaving you with a couple of "all me" hours to enjoy.
Wherever and however you spend the coming summer, be sure to have plenty of great reads at your beck and call. NPOB has all the best in summer reading to help you get your shelves stocked and ready.
