Five years ago, I posted a selection of summer-related paperback fronts in this blog. With the temperatures in usually pleasant Seattle soaring lately into the 80s and record 90s, I thought I ought to revisit that theme. So for the next couple of weeks, you can expect this page to be bursting out with sandy beaches, bikinis, smoldering lust, drifting sailboats, striped towels, and a few tall libations to keep the heat from causing too much trouble. Stay cool!
