Romance books are perfect for reading in your Softub. Light a few candles, turn on some low music, and grab a copy of Navy Families by Debbie Macomber.

Let’s be honest who doesn’t love a man in uniform? They will no doubt make for an enjoyable night of reading.
Mystery and Romance aren’t your style? How about a self-help book. You can improve your life while you improve your mind and body in your Softub. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R.

For the Kids
Don’t forget the kids. Reading in the Softub is a perfect incentive for getting your kiddos to continue reading through the summer. We picked a couple of books that they’ll enjoy too. Hello, Universe written by Erin Entrada Kelly was the Newberry Medal winner for 2018. It is a gripping story told from the perspectives of four middle school students as one of them gets trapped in a well. It is sure to be a hit.
Next, we suggest Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut written by Derrick Barnes, illustrated by Gordon C. James. Although it wasn’t an award winner, it was nominated for the Newberry medal and the Caldecott award. Crown tells the story of how a fresh haircut can bring you fame like royalty. It is a story that everyone can relate to and the kids are sure to love.
