Choose Your Book, Choose Your Adventure

We match four new books from local authors with your long weekend plans.

It’s the Friday before Labor Day weekend. You’ve just returned home from work, tired but excited for the glorious three-day weekend ahead. It’s the perfect chance to read a book. But which one? Before you can ponder, your cellphone rings. A glance at the caller I.D. tells you it’s your outdoorsy friend, famous for both her last-minute plans as well as an aversion to text messages. You sigh, not sure if you’re prepared for an early morning trek to Mount Diablo, or a spur-of-the-moment trip to Santa Cruz. With her, it’s always an adventure, but you’ve been looking forward to hanging around the apartment this weekend.
