How many of you stayed out of the water for an entire summer due to Peter Benchley's Jaws???
A Reader's Respite wouldn't even go near a swimming pool the summer we turned 12 and read this book for the first time. (And no, we're not going to tell you what year that was...nice try.)
Jaws is indeed a summer staple and each year we are pleased to see it scare the pee out of a whole new generation. A rite of passage, if you will.
Why are we chattering on and on about Jaws? Because BBC Audiobooks America has a new Audiobook Club and Jaws is their first book!
The best part? All you need to do to join all of us cool kids who are part of this new book club is a Facebook account. Just head over to their Jaws discussion group and click "join this group." You can also use the link on their group page to buy the audiobook (yes, we know it's a marketing ploy, but our theory is if you're gonna spend money, spend it on a book!). There will be an open discussion on the audiobook June 24-28, so there's lots of time to get in on this one.
Oh, and while you're over there on Facebook, find A Reader's Respite (search: Michele Jacobsen) and friend us! We love wasting time on Facebook!
