Vintage Beach Books for Summer Reading, what are you reading? I crank through at least two books a week on the 7 inch android tablet... light as a feather and bright enough to sit out on the porch and read it in daylight. At my advanced age I find that keeping the background black and the type whie (and large enough) I can actually sit out there and relax without glasses. I'd have to put them on to read anything printed in a 'real' book. 'Twas many years ago I got started on Summertime Beach (or seaside - or AT sea) Reading. Tom Robbins was a favorite of our nightly reading group aboard Houseboat Tralfamadore in the Lagoon of St Thomas. We would gather around a kerosene lamp while bathed in the vapors of many mosquito coils as someone or another would read to us from 'Another Roadside Attraction,' amongst other well-worn paperbacks. Of course we had already listened to almost all of the Vonnegut oeuvre to that date (1973). I've got a whole list of suggestions, how about you?
