    • 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.

    • I don’t change reading for seasons either. 🙂 Wisconsin here.

    • 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.

    • Pat that’s exactly how I feel!

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

  37. 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.

  38. 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!
