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.

Seattle Kitchen's Katie O recommends "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn

Katie O writes ... "Gone Girl" is the epitome of a beach read and has been the book du jour on many best-selling lists for good reason. Never has getting sucked into another couple's dysfunction been so enjoyable! My only suggestion: If you really do take this on a beach vacation, bring another book because you'll gobble this one up so fast, you may be left with nothing to read for 90 percent of your trip.
