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.

  1. OHHH....I WANT to read The Time Traveler's Wife too...I saw the movie preview and that's sooo right up my alley! Tofu, Broccoli and rice...YUMMO...

  2. always yummy food on your blog!!

  3. lol, obviously i am still reading your blog backwards! :D Did you finish Time Traveler's wife? I read it two years ago and in case you haven't opened it yet, my advice: DO NOT READ IT IF TODD IS AWAY. When I read the book Mark was in the US for two months and it was horrible to close the book and not reach out and hug him.

    But otherwise it is a really great book! I'm going to go over the Beach Books list you mentioned and hope to catch some titles i can shop for :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
