Readings for the Beach

I'm packing for the upcoming trip to the beach. For me some light and fun reads is a must for vacationing on the beach. Some of the books I just got and some I'm planning to re-read. Here is my list.

1. Love Style Life by Garance Dore

This seems to be the "It Book" right now. The author Garance Dore has a fantastic blog I adore. I have seen so many recommendations from various sources. I just picked this one up and is eager to dig in.

I love this book! I have read this book more than three times. This book has helped me define my style, and not to be a pray of trend. Not that I love rules, but some principles could really help one find her/his true personal style. Every time I read this book, I find something new. And now it's a good time to re-read this one. Plus, I love the illustrations in this book! And a few other books by Nina Garcia that I have read and loves:

3. The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman

I first read this book when I was still a student. It was a required reading for one of the classes. I liked it but nothing more. Now that I am doing design myself, I started to realize how insightful this book was. I will read it agin.

I own the set and she is on book 4. It took me long enough to get through the first three. I have watched all 5 seasons of shows but the wait for a new season is agonizing... I heard the book and show diverged a bit towards the end of last season, so I'm going to find out.

My dear readers, what are your beach reads? Do you have any other recommendations?
