A Traveler's Summer Reading List

Growing up, I was one of the few kids at school who actually looked forward to getting my hands on the summer reading list. Before the days of Kindles and iPads, I spent many hours outside on the back patio with a glass of iced tea by my side and a novel in my lap. The prize for completing the list was always the same: a coupon for a free Pizza Hut pizza. Now that I'm older, I don't need the incentive. I pick my own list by getting recommendations from friends, other bloggers, and the NY Times Book Review. Here is just a taste of what's at the top of my summer reading list:
