Summer Reads

One of my favorite activities (of course) is reading. My girls and I treated ourselves to several books prior to leaving. Here are some of our favorites...

If you have a teenage daughter: The Daughters series by Joanna Philbin, and The Beautiful Between by Alyssa B. Sheinmel.

When in Rome: When I'm at the beach, I like to read about the beach. Author Elin Hilderbrand writes about her hometown of Nantucket in her books, Barefoot and The Blue Bistro. (And don't forget Harwich author Joan Anderson.)

Food for thought: Reading about writing is not work for me. I highly recommend Julia Cameron's, A Right to Write, and Marion Roach Smith's, The Memoir Project.
