Your Ultimate Summer Reading List
For your reading pleasure: summer books picked by friends old (you know them from Real Simple’s No-Obligation Book Club) and new (you know them from the best-seller lists).
If you hate to be seaside (or lakeside or poolside or anything -side) without a book in hand, you’ve landed in the right place. Real Simple asked 31 noted authors—some we know from our No-Obligation Book Club, some we know from the best-seller ranks—to answer this question: What book makes a great beach read? Their recommendations are as interesting, fun, smart, and different as the authors themselves. Prepare to be surprised.
