Get your beach reads list together, because summer is right around the corner! Nothing beats being outside (especially on a beach) enjoying a fun, easy read.
I recently asked readers on Facebook their favorites and compiled a list of 18 highly-rated books to get you ready.
Most of these are less an $10 on Amazon but don’t forget, you don’t have to buy books. Head to the library (many have a great e-book selection if you don’t want to head in), search the thrift store, or even ask your friends if they have copies on their shelves. (See our 6 favorite apps for free eBooks).
Note: Many of these books I haven’t read personally, so do your research before selecting to make sure it’s something you want to read.
