I love summer reading. When I was a youngster, I could hardly wait until school was out so I could join the library summer reading program. I’d happily stock up on all sorts of books, then spend my summer afternoons ravenously reading out in the backyard. True, some of the neighborhood kids made fun of me. But I didn’t care, because there was nothing I loved more in summertime than taking a stack of books under the shade tree, setting up my chaise lounge, and settling in to read for an entire afternoon.
My son was the same way, although when he was a teenager, his preferred summer reading was usually graphic novels. He would have adored this site – “www.canadapost.ca/shopper/comic-books-anime/sc/896”
…too bad he’s outgrown this passion (or has he?)
If reading is one of your favorite summer activities, or even if you’re looking for one perfect book to take on a beach vacation, you’ve come to the right place. Lynne Griffin’s wonderful novel, Sea Escape, is the perfect summer read. I read this novel last summer and loved it…It’s got interesting characters, a great family dynamic, and it’s set at the beach. What’s not to like?
Sea Escape has just been released in paperback, and I have a brand new copy to give away to someone who’s looking for that perfect summer read.

Happy Summer Reading, y’all.
