beach reads

i dont know if anyone is still around...lol...but i thought i'd ask about beach reads. i know i started a beach reads thread earlier in the year, but it seems to have vanished.

i am going to cuba on saturday - woo hoo! - and would like to know if anyone can suggest a good beach read.

thanks

I found Atonement by Ian McEwan a satisfactory beach read this year. And the film comes out early 2008.

thanks for the invite, frieda. i just miss the fun we used to have with "good reading". i really only post about books and travel, and ive got a great travel site.

i am heading to the mayan riviera on saturday, south of cancun, and im searching for a book to take. i just finished a thousand splendid suns by khaled (the kite runner) hosseini. i enjoyed it, but i dont want anything as heavy - literally or figuratively...lol

hope everyone is well!

oh, no worries about that! there's this subforum called "Et Cetera", it has a wonderful thread about books in it: http://bulletin.zefrank.com/showthread.php?t=13035

you can also start a new thread on beach reads if you like, i'm sure it'll start off nicely

and do feel free to post about your travels, if you've got any nice photos to share or travel stories or or or anything i'd love to hear some, i've never been to those places like cuba or the mayan riviera or anything!
