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.

11 of 12 Editor Stephanie Klein recommends "Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl" by Timothy Egan

Stephanie writes ... If you like reading about everyday heroes dealing with natural disaster, this is your book. Follow the drama as these characters struggle to breath in thick, dust, deal with massive crop failures, and suffer the death of family members. It'll put a little sand in your shoes into perspective.
