The LA Times posted an interesting anti-beach reading list: 9 books NOT to read at the beach for various reasons. Of course Jaws leads their list, especially if you are sitting on a Cape Cod beach. Beach vacations aren’t at the top of my list for summer fun, but going to camp or someone’s cottage in Muskoka or other scenic Ontario places are much more likely to happen. This got me thinking. Can we come up with an equivalent list of books one shouldn’t read in the woods, or at the cottage?
Gerald’s Game by Stephen King might have to top a list like that. I’ve only heard about this book, but it sounds appropriately horrific. Are there others?
