The solstice has come and gone, and the Fourth of July is around the corner. We’re well into the season of beaches and barbecues—which means it’s high time that we ask our readers for summer reading suggestions that might be of special interest to journalists.

We’ve asked for book recommendations before—either for a hot summer day or a cold winter night—and you’ve always come through with lots of great ideas. So we want to hear from you again: Which reads should we be packing for the beach this summer?

If you'd like to get email from CJR writers and editors, add your email address to our newsletter roll and we'll be in touch.
