If I look very, very hard to the south this morning, I think I can see a little shimmer of beach. Six more days of school and then a whole summer to breathe and try to regain my Happiness Mojo.
If you are even half as exhausted as I feel today, then this is the list for you: Best Beach Bag Books. No Things-They-Carried or (heaven help us!) War-and-Peace titles on this list. Delicious. Refreshing. Soothing.
If you are like me, you know about Fannie Flagg and Alexander McCall Smith and Janet Evanovich and the Mitford books of Jan Karon. Here are some that are equally gentle. You won't find these on the front shelves of B&N, but they all have the lulling scent of summer.
See what you think.
Birdbaths and Paper Cranes
Elsewhere in the Land of Parrots
Bet Your Bottom Dollar
The Egg and I
She Taught Me to Eat Artichokes
Cynthia Rylant's Van Gogh Café
World of Pies
I bet you have some wonderful gentle beach bag book recommendations for me. I hope you will share them.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
