It's Beach Time! Escape with a Good Beach Reading Book



Hooray! It's time to escape to the beach. Summer has finally arrived (in the Northern hemisphere) with bright sunshine and warm sand, and blue water (well, not in Lake Michigan usually, but still fun.) Summer time is the season to escape from the everyday hum drum of life and take time for yourself.

Pick up some great books or download your e-reader and head for the beach or your favorite spot to read a book just for fun, for entertainment. Mystery, romance, paranormal, sci-fi--whatever you fancy. Maybe this is the season to try out a new genre.

In July I will direct you to some of my favorite books and introduce you to authors who may be new to you. In the comments, please suggest books you enjoy for beach reading time.


Time for fun!
