  • I would read the Montgomery Wards catalog if I was under a beach umbrella with my toes in the sand!

  • LOL, no beach here in the Sonoran Desert; we’re still waiting for California to drop into the ocean when the promised earthquake hits 🙂

  • My literary tastes don’t change based on the season. And I prefer mountains to beaches. 🙂

  • Elin Hindebrand, Nancy Thayer – both set on Nantucket

  • I like Alice Munro, and she has a new one coming out.

  • CAMERAlot the digital book. Have smart camera phone and will travel to the beach to read.

  • Daniel Silva, Louise Penny, and Clive Cussler usually release books each summer.

  • Steamy novels but I’ve toned it down. ‘Shadow Behind the Curtain’. Velda Johnston. I don’t want to have a heart-attack.

  • Some of the better John Grisham books, they hold my interest and move quickly enough to finish before the end of vacation.

  • Don’t change reading choices by season. I don’t understands what people mean by “beach” reads. Sorry. Live in Iowa.

    • My home state!!! Always love hearing from an Iowan. Kurt Vonnegut called the phenomenon of regional association (like when one is in another state and sees a car with a license plate from their home state) “granfalloon”!

    • I do live by the beach. I read all kinds of genres throughout the year but during the summer I like quick, easy reads. Not exclusively, but sometimes.

    • LOL I’ll read anything in the summer however I do lean toward summer/beach settings when I’m down the shore. But when I’m sitting in my house in NJ watching the snow come down, I have no interest in reading a book set at the beach. I’ll save it for summer.

  • Something light and funny….Sophie Kinsella is perfect.

  • Nora Roberts, Julie Garwood, mystery romances for the beach. Longer novels for lazing out on the porch.

  • Iona Whishaw, the Lane Winslow series. 1st. book is “A Killing in King’s Cove.” Reminiscent of Charles Todd, Agatha Christie and Jacqueline Winspear.

  • Last summer, I took “Behold the Dreamers” to the beach and that was fabulous. The summer before that I read “Home” by Julie Andrews whilst vacationing and that’s the book I think of now whenever I’m at the beach! I enjoyed it so much.

  • Just read Anita Shreve’s new book The Stars are Fire. This would be a great beach read!

    • Read last year? 2? and that character, that fire and that escaping into water’s edge scene still come into my mind so often! Firematic family here and don’t know if I would have thought of that- learned something! Great unforgettable read!

  • I like a good mystery by authors like Marjorie Allingham, Dorothy Sayers, P.D. James and of course, Agatha Christie.
