Summer Reading: Top 10 Books On Our List

By  | 

Summer’s almost officially here, which means we’re supposed to force ourselves to read actual books (not iPads or iPods) at the beach, by the pool, or lounging in bed on a lazy Sunday morning. So here, in no particular order, are 10 of our favorite new (or relatively new) books to pick up and never put down this summer. There’s something for everyone here: Food, gardening, sustainable agriculture, home renovation, shopping addiction, gentlemen farmers, short story collections, and a prison memoir. Oh, and Raquel Welch. Happy summer.
