Summer Reading list for June

Dear Readers,

I am going to post summer reading ideas at the beginning of every month this summer.  Instead of over whelming you with ideas and books I will just list a few good ones and you can pick and choose.  If you want the entire list, please feel free to stop in the store and pick one up or contact me and I will be glad to mail you one.   

In no particular order, these are all great summer reads.  Historical, contemporary and fantasy.  Murder and Mayhem alongside of romantic comedy.  They are all worth taking along to the beach, camping out or just finding your favorite spot in the yard.
