Fun Summer Reading

I just love a good beach book during the Summer and I especially love books by Dorothea Benton Frank. Her books are always good and they usually are about the Low Country in South Carolina. I try not to buy hardback books anymore but there are a few authors that I will buy and Dorothea is one of them. Go here to read a portion of this book. She has lots of books in paperback out there so if you have never read any of her books and love a good Summer read go and get one. I really liked The Land of Mango Sunsets and it is in paperback.
Hope everyone is having a good start to their week. The weather was cooler here last week but it has decided to warm up again. And I can't believe this but I was in a store yesterday and they are putting out school supplies already. Didn't Summer just start? LOL Have a good one!

This book seems to be good. I have never heard about Dorothea in Norway.
I read more books earlier, now I don't read so much.
We have also had warm weather a couple of weeks, but now it isn't so hot.
I hope you will have a good summer!
Hugs. <3

Those stinking stores rush everything! Right after they are done stocking school supplies, they will be putting Halloween stuff out!

I don't want to think about school supplies. LOL I don't think I have ever read any of this author's books. I will have to live forever to read all the books on my "to be read" list!

My stack of books waiting to be read grew to one more yesterday but I'll be on the lookout for this one.

Summer sales are going on here too, durn, it'll still be hot here until October or later! School starts back next month.

I just finished her "Bulls Island" this week while we were gone. I too really like her books, but will wait until that one is out in paperback or at the library.

Hope you have a good weekend, sweet lady. ((hugs))
