New York Times Summer Reads

Over the weekend the New York Times listed it's summer reads -- recommended for the beach. As always, there are a couple that I wholeheartedly recommend (I read them), some I don't know about and a couple I wonder WHAT they were thinking.

It was great to see that about half of these books are avialable as eBooks which makes them cheaper and more portable.

So without further ado -- here is the list:

  • CITY OF FIRE by Robert Ellis (St. Martin’s Minotaur); 357 pages; $24.95.
  • DREAM WHEN YOU’RE FEELING BLUE by Elizabeth Berg (Random House); 276 pages; $24.95 -- the eBook is only $17.95
