2nd Annual Bacon Press Books Summer Reading Festival
I'll admit it. I'm as guilty as anyone when it comes to loading up on mindless escape reading when I'm at the beach. And yet. There are times when I also want something a little more substantial, though not quite War and Peaceor Ulysses.But, according to an article in The Washington Post "Diving into the sexist, er, sexy beach read" by Sophie McManus (Aug.6, 2016) the beach is crowded with women reading mostly "juicy" books. (I'd gladly provide the link but can't seem to find it.)
Given all the outrageous overstatements we're bombarded with these days, this one's pretty mild. I know I've seen guys on vacation reading books.
Which is why we're having our Second Annual Summer Reading Festival - featuring great beach books. All are priced at $1.99 - $2.99 through the end of August.
Short story collections are great vacation reading. We have three on sale.
