The Best Books to Read Over Spring Break

We have compiled an amazing book list that you can jump into as you crack open a cold one, whether you’re tanning on a beach in Bermuda or just hanging out on your living room couch. With recommendations from our eclectic staff and some of our Twitter followers, there is definitely something for everyone. But if the only literature you plan on reading next week is the drink menu at your swim-up hotel bar, we’re not passing any judgment.

  • Lee Lawver endorses A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. According to Lee, the claims that this is the book of our generation are valid. And I trust him.
  • Ali Fogarty suggests The Great Gatsby because it’s just as good the hundredth time around.
  • Devon Edwards plans on reading Scorecasting and Catch-22 for the first time since high school.
  • John Tecce recommends Friday Night Lights and The Blind Side–the books. They both got his mom’s stamp of approval, as well.

Our readers also contributed a few suggestions on Twitter:

Explaining the Fro-Yo War: Who Came Out on Top

Fro-yo (or frozen yogurt) is the latest craze to take over Happy Valley. Healthier than ice cream with an infinite number of toppings, the combination is drive girls in droves downtown to get their fix. The addition of two new businesses has led to a extreme price war, with owners vying to have not only the best prices but each claiming their flavors are the best. Since we know our readers don’t have the time to try them all and decide for themselves, we did it for you and have decided which really hits the spot.
