|You'll also wanna good bag for going to|
the beach or pool or wherever. I love Baggu's
bags. They're cute, durable and would be great
for wet clothes or swim suits. There's a VAST array
of patterns and colors to chose from so you might want
to buy two.. or three! Visit baggubag.com for more info.
$8 each or $22 for 3
|In addition to a good pool/beach bag you'll want a good overnight bag for vacations. I've been enchanted by Dakine's EQ bags, which are of good quality and come in some pretty awesome patterns. I own two and am completely satisfied with both. As an added plus you can get all sorts of extra stuff to go with your bag that match the pattern (laptop|
sleeves, toiletries bags, etc.) These bags are currently $40 for the medium size (About what you'll want for a weeks worth of stuff/clothes) at Altrec.com, but they will probably be on sale sooner or later. (I got mine for about $25) If you really want one, I'd recommend looking on Ebay.com, where you'd probably find one you like!

Also for you're summer you'll want a good book to read, because you should really enter your library's reading program. Some libraries have extravagant prizes (Ipods, gift cards) others aren't on such a grand scale, but you should really visit your local library to see what they have going one. Anyway as for books, I recommend The Charlatan's Boy by Jonathan Rogers. It's a good, fun read and would make a good start to your summer! You can read my review on this book on this blog. Some other titles I recommend are The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck, Adam, The Mysterious Benedict Society, and Skin. If you'd like more recommendations you can ask your librarian, or me at firstname.lastname@example.org And remember all books are free if you get them at the library!
That's all for now.. Enjoy your summer!
