    I tried a search but didn't find anything but I'm looking for some "easy reads" for the beach. I have a kindle and wanted to load it up before we leave (on Tuesday morning) and was reaching out to your girls for some good beach reads!

    Any suggestions?!

        I just finished 'Something Borrowed' From Emily Griffith? I loved it so much I bought the sequel, Something Blue.

            I love the Phillippa Gregory books about Anne Boleyn & the Tudors (The Other Boleyn Girl, The Boleyn Inheritance, The Constant Princess, etc. etc). Great historical fiction -- very interesting, some history (so you learn something) and a dash of trashiness that I cannot resist!

              I just read a ton of books that were amazing - not as much 'beach reads' as the Something Borrowed series - but amazing. I can only think of four of them right now. This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Topper is at the top of the list. I don't know the authors for the rest but: Little Bee, The Help, and Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire. I highly recommend all 4 books - but if I have to rank them, This is Where I Leave You and The Help were my favorites.

                Hey while you're all at it, can anyone suggest a book or two that would be good for an FI who DOESN'T read?!?! I've tried and tried, but can't think of anything that might keep him entertained for long enough. He just keeps telling me to find him poker magazines.

                  If he likes poker, what about Bringing Down the House - it's about card counting and blackjack. Michael Lewis also writes great 'man' books. He wrote Moneyball - about baseball scouting, The Blind Side which was just made into a movie with Sandra Bullock - about the evolution of the right tackle (football), Liars Poker about Lehman Brothers. He's a great author. My fiance also loves Michael Chabon - he writes fiction.
