British contemporary fiction. And lots of it.

I've ditched the "high-brow" stuff for a bit and am totally addicted. Jenny Colligan is the author I'm reading at the moment, she has a book out called "Searching for Andrew McCarthy".

But, you shouldn't be doing lots of reading on vaca, girl!

Any book by Nicholas Sparks, such as The Notebook, Message In A Bottle, A Walk To Remember.. any of those.

And if you're feeling in a brave mood, my all-time favorite book: The Shining by Stephen King

"High Fidelity," "About A Boy" or "How to be Good" by Nick Hornby are so great -- clever, funny, honest and completely hard to put down!

I've read this! I've read pretty much everything by King now that I think of it.

I love to read when I have the time too... I cant wait to do some catching up while sitting by the lake!

It's not about the bike Yes!! I'm so glad someone else mentioned this book. I love this book, it's very easy to read.
A Walk to Remember, cried through the book...very good vacation book!
Last week I picked up The Talented Mr.Ripley (because I didn't realize it was a book) and The Bourne Identity
If you haven't read The Shining -you must!!!

Recently read Leon Uris - Trinity and Martin Dillon - The Shankill Butchers.

Worth a read

If you're looking for some quick non-intellectual summer reading, I recommend the Janet Evanovich books. They're a series starting with One For The Money. I'm on book #4 now. They're about a female bounty hunter in New Jersey, and they're very fast-paced and witty.
