Share A List: 100 Best Beach Books Ever
I love the romanticized notion of tossing a good book into my beach bag and getting engrossed in a story with the sound of waves crashing in the background. That's why I was extremely intrigued by NPR's audience voting of the 100 Best Beach Books Ever. They had about 600 books nominated, then the NPR Book Board narrowed it down to the Top 200 and had the audience vote. Here is the result of the 100 Best Beach Books Ever, according to NPR audiences. As you can see, these are not easy slushy reads. Some of the books are quite substantial, and there's quite a mix of classics versus current pop culture hot reads. I will be reading The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger next. Peppermint read it and brought it for me to read when she came to visit last week. :) Oh and I do love lists like these, so when I come upon other cool lists, I will be sharing them on this blog. I will call these my "Share A List" posts, since I don't come up with the lists. Today's photo is of Todd drinking a Blueberry Pomegranate Ice-Blended at The Coffee Bean. We shared one after a homecooked dinner of Broccoli Tofu Stir-fry.
