Hot! Books that are “summery”.

Well, for me this is a no brainer. I would have to say that the book that I have read that reminds me most of summer is “Gidget “. I read it during the summer — I remember laying on my bed with the blue floral bedspread, with the windows wide open in the sweltering Texas heat because we had no a/c reading “Gidget”. Of course, the subject matter was “summery” because they were on the beach in California!

I have to say that while I did read during the summer, I did the majority of my reading during the school year and even now identify reading with curling up on a cold day and getting lost in whatever I am reading.

  3. I loved "Gidget" — the book, the movies, the tv show — I mean, who didn't want to be either Sandra Dee or Sally Field? I remember my mother thinking that I was reading a questionable novel when I read it — so funny — life in the 60's!

  7. Never read the book, but I liked the movies and TV show. Although I never really cared for Sandra Dee as Gidget – thought she was sort of sappy. But I loved Sally Field (I like her – I really like her!) in the TV version. For some reason, though, Sally Field has always reminded me of our Aunt Betty Jean. Strange, huh?
