If ever there's a time to get serious about reading, Summer's it! Whether it's because of the longer hours of daylight or the relaxing vacations, lots of folks start stacking up on good reads during the Summer months.
There are some good new books out just in time for beach reading, too. For those of you looking for a little beach-themed escapism, you might check out a couple of this year's books that are set in the Hamptons: How the Other Half Hamptons and LoveHampton. I'm currently having a great time reading my June book club selection, but am definitely adding books that have been getting high praise like The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and the brand new David Sedaris book When You Are Engulfed in Flames. I also like to add nonfiction to my lists, even if it's something a little darker, like Kathryn Harrison's While They Slept.
So, what's on your Summer reading list? Do you prefer light and fun or do you tackle something more challenging when the weather heats up? Anything you've promised yourself you'll pick up and complete before Labor Day?
