With Monday being Memorial day I thought I would start releasing my summer reading suggestions. Not ever good book is on the list as I think this year it would be about 6 or 7 pages long. They are not in any particular order, I recommend them all, just pick out the ones you would like best and enjoy.
This year you can map your summer reading road trip out. Amy at Bethany Publishing gave me the idea and I thought it sounded like fun. Grab a map or let me know and I can send you one, and color in the state that the book (s) that you are reading is set in. See how many states you can visit before Labor Day.
P.S. I will be sharing more of the list as dates and time allow. If you want the complete list right away, please contact me and I will mail you a copy or you can stop by the store and pick up a copy in the fiction department.
