On the Island

On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves

Last summer I recieved an email from Barnes and Noble letting me know the top beach reads of 2013 and little blurbs about each book they listed.

I’m not sure about you but I get ridiculously bored on the treadmill, I start staggering a bit then my mind wanders. I have concluded that audiobooks are the BEST IDEA EVER – for me at least.
