Activity from Beach Reads
Posted by Team Swagbucks on Fri, July 6th, 2012 at 10:00 am
As the summer heats up across the country our brains begin to melt. Okay, maybe that is a little dramatic but I know that as the thermometer rises my desire to tax my brain wanes. I suppose this is where the term Beach Read developed. I like this description by about.com, “A good beach book is engaging and quick enough read that you can finish most of it before your sunscreen wears off”. With that in mind the July Swagbucks Book Club selection is Can You Keep a Secret? by London born author Sophie Kinsella.
Publishers Weekly writes, “Backstabbing office shenanigans, competition, scandal, love and sex…. Kinsella’s down-to-earth protagonist is sure to have readers sympathizing and doubled over in laughter.” Please join us Friday July 27th when we discuss this title. Can You Keep a Secret? is available in the Swag Store as Kindle edition or you can put those Amazon Gift Cards or Barnes & Noble Gift Cards to use. Or check your local library.
For today’s discussion I want to know if you purposely choose a lighter read when you go on vacation and if so, what is your favorite? Do you have certain books that you associate with past vacations? For me, every time I hear about Steven King’s Christine I’m immediately transported back to a family road trip in the mid-’80s to Myrtle Beach, SC where my brother and I shared the same copy of the book. Not only was the book so engrossing that I didn’t want to put it down, if I did, I never knew when I might get it back. I still look fondly on that vacation and that book as they went hand in hand. What are your favorite Beach Reads?
