    "Buddy", by Brian McGrory   Serious, hilarious, and just a perfect read on a lounge chair or hammock.  I read the book in my backyard, with my very own chickens "pecking away" behind me, and loved it.   Recommend you have your favorite pet nearby when reading this gem...

    Give it a Try

    When I was in high school, I was just hanging around the house one summer, and I think my mom was tired of my teen angst attitude.  She bought me a copy of 'Gone With the Wind', handed it to me, and said 'Read it'.  I began, albeit reluctantly.  I absolutely raced through it in two days, I couldn't put it down for anything.  It's the perfect summer beach/porch book - history, romance, heartbreak, and finally triumph (well, sort of)  And of course there's Scarlett and Rhett, what more can you say??

    A must read is "Following Atticus by Tom Ryan.  It is a remarkable story about a local man and his dog.

    Re: Your summer book recommendations

    There are so many great books I've read lately, I'd definitely recommend "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini, "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls, and "Don't Go" by Lisa Scottoline.

    I just found this book site, spotlightreader.com. I think it's new, but so far it has been a great site to find new books to read, plus create book clubs and bookshelves which I really enjoy.

    Crystals of Yukitake by Elizabeth D'Onofrio  -if you want a soul-searching journey with history and a bit of romance

    37 Stories about 37 Women by Brian Whitney  -if you want a modern Canterbury Tales type book that reflects the grittier slice of life.

    Unbroken. Best non fiction book I have read in a while. Amazing story of suffering and survival during WWII.

    Love the 'Art of Racing in the Rain.' The book was fantastic. The author is also a very very nice guy. That second to last chapter was powerful. It made me openly weep.

    Re: Your summer book recommendations

    I like non-fiction, particularly about history and delivered with wit.  I highly recommend anything by Tony Horwitz or Sarah Vowell.  A Land So Strange, by Andre Resendez; about the 16th-century journey through the Southeastern United States and Mexico by Cabeza de Vaca; one of the most fascinating stories I've ever read.  I also enjoyed 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles Mann.
