Ahhh, the blazing sun, soft sand sticking to your post-swim shorts/knickers, a bottle of cola that started cold but is now bubbling and hot – these, friends, are perfect reading conditions. In fact, we’ve probably read more books on holiday than anywhere else, but there is an enormous difference between a holiday book and any other kind of book. It needs to have just the right bounce, pace and vibe to get you through a decent sunbathe without upsetting you too much or forcing you to consider the deep moralities of life.
