One of my favorite summer pleasures is spending time outside with a good book. Whether it’s on my deck, in a sidewalk cafe, or a park, there’s just something about reading outdoors that makes one of my favorite pastimes even more special.

You can find plenty of suggestions for your reading list in the book section on this site. Today, I’m sharing a couple of favorites that make for great summer reading.Continue Reading
