It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for . . .

My “Aloha Friday” question this week is: 

 WHAT’S  YOUR RECOMMENDATION

FOR A GOOD SUMMER READ?

As for me, I’m usually catching up with “educational literature” over the summer and  just finished re-reading Jonathan Kozol’s Savage Inequalities, which exposes the extreme differences between wealth and poverty in America’s school system.

For a light, fun, beach read, I’m just finishing Elin Hilderbrand’s The Beach Club.  She’s got a bunch of nice, light summer titles that you might enjoy.

  1. Confessions of a shopaholic.

  2. Audrey Says:

    Anything by JD Robb/Nora Roberts. She has never disappointed me.

  3. Jeremy Says:

    Most of what I read deals with my profession. You probably wouldn’t like it. 🙂 I need to read more “fun” books though.

  4. Sues2u2 Says:

    The Kris Longknife series by Mike Shephard. It starts w/ Mutineer. Very good.

  5. Right now, I’m reading “The Vanishing Face of Gaia,” but it’s not a summer read necessarily. I’m more into heavy science nonfiction, so I’m probably not the one to ask!

  6. Becca Says:

    I highly recommend James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell.

  7. O gosh wish I could help out I haven’t been able to pick up a book since my 4th child arrive

    Sorry

  8. Kailani Says:

    I love reading chick lit during the summer. I’m really looking forward to reading the new Sophie Kinsella book.
