Just returned from a week at the beach. Saw lots of people reading. Three Kindles, the rest traditional books. Tried to see each title so I could report.....my eyes are not what they used to be. Asked several people and looked under some beach canopies for others.

Have just finished reading Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks. Loved that she took a tiny thread of factual material and created such a readable, believable story. Historical fiction is what helped prompt me to choose history as my undergraduate concentration. Seems to have a reputation today as "bodice tearing romances"....this is definitely not that. Extremely well done.
