For this year's summer reading list in The Baltimore Sun, I'm compiling a list of the Best Dirty Books.
Not that kind of dirty. I mean books meant to be read outdoors because they carry a whiff of salt spray or the grit of sand. Here are a few: Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey and The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger.
Other suggestions? Let me know and I'll include them on the list, which runs June 21.
