With summer not so far off now, I've been having a think about good books to take on holiday (or read in a sunny corner of the park!)
Personally I like my beach/garden reading well-written but not too heavy-going and I'm starting to scout around for contenders. I've been given Sue Monk Kidd's latest novel, The Invention of Wings, a story about slavery by the author of The Secret Life of Bees, and will probably save that to read in the sunshine (despite the heavy subject matter, the treatment sounds beautiful). So I'm now looking around for more inspiration.
How do you choose, and what kinds of books to you like to take away with you? Any recommendations?
