On the blog:
Summer is approaching fast, and it’s time to ponder that eternal question: What books do I pack for vacation?
How you answer depends on what you love to read, but whatever it is, I want to hear about it. For the next few weeks, I’ll be taking answers about the best beach/cruise/summer vacation reads on The Back Cover books blog. A compilation will run in the newspaper.
Here’s your chance to share your excellent taste in reading with the Roanoke and New River valleys and beyond on The Back Cover. Visit online at blogs.roanoke.com/backcover.
