One of the things I always pack whether it’s for a long trip, weekend or just popping up to my roof is a good book. Here’s my reading list for this Summer…a bit ambitious, but I’m planning on a trip to Europe, some long weekends and some quality time at the beach and pool. My list is a mix of Historical non-fiction, some espionage thrillers, dash of the Supernatural and one on life, love, rises and falls…
The Great Sea -The history of the Med and Mankind from 22,000BC to the present . This is my new pool book
A Quiet Flame – Thriller that takes place in 1950’s Argentina with an ex Berlin Head Detective on the run and investigating a murder and missing person. Just finished this today…it was excellent
