Summer 2024: Vacation Reads About Swimming, Sailing, Traveling, and Goofing Off

Just in time! 150 books, both fact and fiction, that all deal with , in some way, shape, or form, going somewhere else and doing something else ( or doing nothing) . Granted, I've been very liberal in defining swimming, sailing, and travelling, so some of these books are not what you would call getaway guides.
