Ten books from ten different genres,
light reads, but
all just a little bit more thoughtful than
your average trashy beach read.
The Monk Downstairs
A monk leaves the monastery and
moves into the home of a jaded single mom.
Lois on the Loose:
One Woman, One Motorbike,
20,000 Miles Across the Americas
The World is Not Enough
Best historical fiction ever.
A wacky tale of the Apocalypse.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
Game of Thrones
Chancy and the Grand Rascal
Chancy sets off to find his family
accompanied by the trickiest con man of them all.
One of my favorite books from childhood.
When better to read this fabulous western
than this summer?
How to Be Perfect: Poems
Yes, it's a book of poems
but it's a book of poems
that even you,
you who hate poems,
even you will like.
Julie & Julia
Finally, how about a story that combines
memoir with food?
