Any Time to RELAX this Summer?

Susan Yox, Nurse, Family Medicine, 11:52AM Jul 1, 2013

Do you have time to read a good book or two?

Even if you can only catch a few days of vacation or time-off this summer, how about curling up with a new book, either at home or in a vacation setting?

We have published a few different articles, blogs, and slideshows on books that nurses enjoy over the past few years. After we posted a slideshow on nursing books, we heard from plenty of nurses who told us, "We don't want to read nursing- or medically-related books when we relax. Here are suggestions for pleasure books." So we combined your suggestions with some of our own to provide summer reading recommendations for 2013!
Check out our slideshow and leave your comments or further recommendations below.
