In My Book, Summertime is Synonymous with Iced Tea, an Ocean Breeze and a Good Read

The Dolphin Hale Exhibit 110 Upper Lanai-Final 2
Upper Lanai of The Dolphin Hale – Life is at ease with an ocean breeze and a good read.

I am old school when it comes to my summertime reading, preferring the visceral experience of a hard cover book to that of Kindle’s hard case. And this summer, I hope to actually indulge in more than one read, but where to start?

Thankfully, one of my favorite bloggers, Jen of City Farmhouse, has already done the legwork and compiled this list of 12 amazing must reads for folks like you and me who only tend to read while on vacation–regardless as to the medium or our vacay local.

It includes something old, something new and something to renew you! And isn’t that the idea? For more on these titles and Jen, read Jen’s Summer Book List. Also, be sure to thank Jen by subscribing to her blog.

And, don’t forget to pack your pick in your suitcase!

Enjoy! Aunty Tammy
