One of my all-time favorite things to do in the great outdoors during the summer months doesn’t involve breaking a sweat — or really moving at all, for the matter. I’m talking about grabbing a book (and my iPod, a blanket, and a cold beverage) and heading to my local waterfront park
, to the beach if I'm lucky (Rehoboth here I come!), or even to my delightful, ladder-accessible roof
. Basically, I’ll settle for any outdoor reading spot where there’s grass (or sand) and ample shade (or a giant umbrella).
I don’t know about you but I have a daunting stack of reading materials to chip away at this summer. Looking for a few good titles to add to your "must read" list? Below, you’ll find green home-centric tomes — ranging from adult drop-out memoirs
written by garden bloggers to home ec guides for penny-pinching hipsters — released this year that I had the chance to read (a miracle!) or plan on attempting
to read at some point this summer.
