CollegeCandy Presents Our Summer Reading List

Is there anything better than spending a day reading on the beach, getting a golden glow, and sipping on a Pina Colada? I mean, I'm just guessing that would be the best. My beach days are usually more about trying to keep my hair from birds-nesting in the wind, spraying on SPF 75, and half-heartedly drinking warm beer that's on the verge of boiling in the sun. But I do love opening up a good book, getting lost in the story, and ignoring the fact that there's an elderly man walking back and forth wearing a a speedo thong.

I've always been a pretty avid reader, but ever since I started my freshman year of college I've found that I don't get to read (non-school-related books) as often as I'd like to. Between going to class, working, studying, and still trying to have a social life, there just doesn't seem to be enough time.
