By the time June hits, our Netflix quota has successfully been reached. Game of Thrones. Check. Better Call Saul. Check. Broad City. Check. Re-watching 30-Rock, FRIENDS and Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the millionth time. Check. Then, we see the days filling with sun and blue sky and we remember the JOY of picking a great book (or two) that will end up being our summer-camp-like companion through to the fall.

Seaworthy's founder, creator, maker, HEART & SOUL…Marisa, is looking forward to getting into a Finnish title "The Summer Book" By, Tove Jansson. Marisa describes this book as "Just the sweetest story of a relationship between a grandma and granddaughter -- and a summer spent together on an island."
Production Master, Marley, is stoked to start reading "You'll Grow Out Of It" By, Jessie Klein. "As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity." Quote comes from here where you can check out the author and this book!
Studio Manager, Wholesale Rep and all around shop bad ass, Jenny, is feeling Tom Robbins "Another Roadside Attraction" this summer. GoodReads.com comments that "This book follows a reckless, sexually loose girl named Amanda and her husband, as they open a roadside stand and meet many eccentric characters along the way as they discover many of life’s lessons." Sounds interesting and adventurous!
Production partner, website management and marketing are a few of the roles I play at Seaworthy. My all time favorite summer read, the one that I REFUSED to finish the last few pages of for weeks and weeks, is "Love in the time of Cholera" By Gabriel Garcia Marquez. . The NY Times sums it up perfectly, "Suppose it were possible, not only to swear love 'forever,' but actually to follow through on it - to live a long, full and authentic life based on such a vow, to put one's alloted stake of precious time where one's heart is? This is the extraordinary premise of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel 'Love in the Time of Cholera,' one on which he delivers, and triumphantly." Summer romance reading at its best.
