Add these books to your summer must-read list.

 

For the Adventurer:
In his enCYCLEpedia, Richard Fox takes us on a journey through Southern California’s — and the Coachella Valley’s — most leisurely and scenic summer bike rides.  Available online at www.bigearthpublishing.com

For the Culture Connoisseur:
Turkmen hospitality. Spanish creativity. English manners. According to Bill Sinunu, other cultures can teach us a lot about fun, fulfillment, and the pursuit of happiness. He shares his insight in Living Without Borders. Available online at www.evolvingglobeseries.com

For the Drama Queen:
Those Glamorous Gabors, Darwin Porter’s sizzling biography, delves into the dirty details of these mid–20th–century bombshells — many of whom gallivanted in Palm Springs. Available at Greetings, Palm Springs.

For the History Buff:
In California Then and Now, Karl Mondon captures California’s most epic images from the sandy shores of San Diego to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Available at Greetings, Palm Springs.
