What are you reading this summer? Some of my recent favorites are: The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen Hendrik is in his eighties and lives in a retirement home. Some of his entries are funny, while others are sad. The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin Tells the story of early Hollywood screen writer, Frances Marion and Mary Pickford. The book was fiction, but I found it fascinating. Arabella of Mars by David Levine Arabella was raised in the Mars Colony until she was sixteen, when her Mother decided she needed to return to England (and Earth) to become a lady. Left poor when her father dies, she poses as a boy to work on an air ship to Mars. This was very readable Science Fiction. I'll add others...
Does anyone have any favourite books on "tape" - or more like digital audio copies than actual tape :p I have listened to some non-fiction ones that I like, such as God No by Penn Gillette (on Youtube) Interestingly, I have not found Satan *Speaks* in audio format. There seem to be more non-fiction books about Atheism. Any recommendations?

dear fj-community, in about a week i'll go on my long needed, much deserved vacation to croatia. nothing but laying on the beach, hanging out with my friends and enjoying life. since i have to read a lot for my university classes, i usually don't have time to read books i like.. and i want to change that this summer. i know a lot of you guys are really well read and i'd hoped you may have some suggestions what books to bring on vacation. i am really don't like all that romantic nicolas sparks, cecilia ahern stuff that nearly all the girls i know take to the beach. i'd prefer something in style of 'fried green tomatoes'. it would be great to read something that takes place in the south and has a nice style of storytelling. i am really open to anything (except thrillers - i already packed a good one from sweden!) so, feel free to share your suggestions. they all be appreciated. thanks!!
