What to Read on Your Vacation

Wondering what novel to take with you on your summer trip? Years ago in anticipation of long flights oversees, I would read a book that was based in the area I was going to. I read Pride & Prejudice on a flight to England, then The New Italians on a flight back from Italy. You get the picture. Sometimes it’s fun to immerse yourself in the culture of the area. Or, you can indulge in a book that is just for fun. 

Let’s take a look at the popular books that are making the top seller lists right now.
