Few things are better than getting a tan with your favorite book in hand. Here are some of the books you may want to bring on your holidays. You can buy them at local bookstores.

HOBBIT, THE
By J.R.R. Tolkien
Synopsis: Film tie-in edition of the best-selling classic work of fantasy of Bilbo Baggins’ adventures in Middle-earth, featuring the complete story told in both films, with a striking cover image from Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” and drawings and maps by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling farther than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of 13 dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey ‘there and back again.’ They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…The prelude to “The Lord of the Rings,” “The Hobbit” has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.
