Whether or not you’re hitting the beach for Memorial Day Weekend, I hope you get the chance to relax under nice weather. Make sure you’ve got a good book in tow! I listed some below, OR, you could follow this economical advice from New York Magazine.
I also highly recommend getting a Barnes & Noble membership. It’s $25 a year, and saves you a couple of dollars every time you buy books and offers regular discount coupons – well worth it if you’re a book buyer like me.
