It’s Summertime and the reading is easy. Summer is the best time of year for book lovers, whether on the beach, on a long transcontinental flight, the car, or a lounge chair by the pool, we look forward to curling up with a delectable book. I still prefer “real books”, but I have slowly transitioned to a Kindle. I do appriciate the anonymity of reading an e-reader book, one that you may not want your seat mate to see ie. Fifty Shades of Grey, and the ease of traveling without having to carry a stack of books. I still occasionally splurge on beautiful coffee table books and art books. My list is varied and perhaps there is something that will peak your interest.
“If you’re looking to get married and you’re not, there’s most likely a very good reason: you.”

“Fendi celebrates the iconic Baguette Bag with the worldwide launch of its dedicated Baguette Book.”
“Prodigiously researched, American Tapestry traces the complex and facinating tale of Michelle Obama’s ancestors, a history the First Lady did not even know herself.”

“A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, In One Person is a story of unfulfilled love–tormented, funny, and affecting–and an impassioned embrace of our sexual differences.”
