Beach reads for your summer vacation

The sun is out and you're primed for a getaway. But while you're soaking up that Vitamin D (heavily soaked in sunscreen of course) what should you read by the pool or on the beach? The women of KIRO Radio and have offered up their recommendations to entertain you through the summer heat.

KIRO Radio Anchor Ursula Reutin recommends "Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing" by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman AND "Admission Matters: What Students and Parents Need to Know About Getting into College"

Ursula writes ... This will show you where I am at this stage of my life. These are the latest books I've read. In "Top Dog," the authors look at what makes some people thrive under pressure while others crumble. How can you turn a worrier into a warrior? "Admissions Matters" is a practical guide to make sure your child is ready when the time comes to apply for colleges. Frankly, it's just one of many college admission books I have on my Kindle.
