Please enter me. Half my brain hopes I don't win.

I think Nora Roberts books are my favorite beach reads. Half my attention can be on everything around me, the other half can be with interesting characters in entertaining situations.

I like Sister Honey Bunch's suggestion, except that I don't think I'll be willing to wait to get to the beach to read it!

Chris said...

Oh, gosh, I can't separate books by season! I always love a good fantasy, and beaches seem to be good for re-reading, since I always fall asleep under the sun. So I'll go with my old stand-by, Ender's Game.

Huma said...

It's not a new book, but I have been reading the Julia Quinn Bridgerton Family series. The Duke and I, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and so on. And, to balance it out with some smart reading, Postmodern Fables by Lyotard.

My favorite summer read right now is The Lace Reader. I'm really enjoying it. Last summer, my favorite read was the Twilight series. Thanks for hosting.

I really need some new books to read - hope I win something! I have really been drilling through books this summer. My latest favorite is "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picault - it's a real tear jerker.

I love that you included some junior novels in your giveaway. I am a school teacher and love reading these too~they're just as much fun! Currently I've just started reading Live a Little by Kim Green. It's about a woman who is (mis)diagnosed with cancer.

I am reading, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. Good things to think about in regards to how we eat, and also inspiration as to what to do with all of the beautiful produce from our CSA and farmer's market. I would be thrilled to win these books! I love to read and can never have enough books!

My favorite summer read so far this summer is "Dog On It" by Spencer Quinn. It is an amusing mystery told from the perspective of the PI's dog. It's great fun!

My favorite summer reads are old favorites: Hemingway, Kundera, etc. It may seem heavy, but I've read them all so much that they're just enjoyable to me!

Thanks!

I enjoyed reading what other people like to read. I bought Burn by Linda Howard today. I also enjoy reading books that are meant for a younger audience and am finishing Support Your Local Wizard by Diane Duane. It's very good. I'd love to win your book giveaway.

Anything by Jackie Collins. I'm now reading "Hollywood Kids". Great beach books!

Tom Perrotta's "Little Children". It's a great story, captures the life of stay-at-home moms in the suburbs and it takes place during the summer. Great reading for by the community pool! Much better than the movie by the same name.
