Beach Blanket Books

As I was reading through the AARP Bulletin, I found an article on Beach Blanket Books, and it brought back some memories.  When I think of the beach, I can't help but think of Annette Funicello.  I've included a link to both the magazine and Annette to refresh your memory.  Also, the listing of books in this article was for "50 years of hot summer reads".  Here are some of the highlights:

1965 - Up the Down Staircase by Bel Kaufman
1969 - The Godfather by Mario Puzo
1970 - Love Story by Erich Segal
1974 - Jaws by Peter Benchley
1979 - Sophie's Choice by William Styron
1985 - Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
1989 - The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
1992 - Waiting to Exhale by Terry McMillan
1993 - The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller
1998 - Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
1999 - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K.Rowling
2003 - The DeVinci Code by Dan Brown
2006 - Marley and Me by John Grogan
2007 - Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
2009 - The Shack by William P. Young

And the list goes on and on....check out the Bulletin for a complete list.  I think I'll get a couple of these that I haven't  downloaded.

A friend sent me some pictures with a caption, Pictures that need no caption.  I think some of these came from PInterest, but I think it's OK to share them with you here on the blog:

Hope you enjoy these as I did.  Have a great weekend!
