Vacation Books! Not all all Beach Reads need to be mindless...

Three upcoming reviews on stuff to take in the car, the crowded Amtrak coach, the stuffy plane...so you can unwind and be enlightened once you reach your destination...Kiss the Sky, the debut novel by former NPR host and current MSNBC and CNN commentator Farai Chideya, John Wasik's The Cul-De-Sac Syndrome, which challenges us to rethink how we live & build our communities, so we can live better, and Triangular Road, American Book and Dos Passos award-winning author Paule Marshall's long awaited memoir. Come on...aren't you sick of getting sand or mustard in your Nora Roberts and Grisham books?

HI,

Thanks for the recommendations. I'm looking forward to reading Triangular Road and The Cul-De-Sac Syndrome.

I'm really interested in the small housing movement so The Cul-De-Sac Syndrome is right up my alley.
