Best Beach Reads for Summer 2017

July 10, 2017 – Summer vacation season is in full swing, and whether you’re headed to the beach, the lake or the mountains, there’s nothing better than sitting in the sun and reading a good book.

If you’re looking for suggestions, here is a list of 30 of this summer’s hottest reads.

And if you’re really adventurous, here are the best beach reads of all time according to NPR’s audience.



It’s that time of year again, Charlie Brown

hth5352817_1October 7, 2016 – Good grief! Walking through the mall last night I noticed that the newsstand is well stocked with 2017 calendars—already.

Front and center was the Peanuts Wall Calendar, which I buy my son each Christmas because he loves the Peanuts as much as I do. He’s 32 now, but it’s still tradition.

It’s too early to pick one up now, and the last few years I’ve taken a more lazy route and ordered one for each of us from Amazon, but it got me thinking. Charlie Brown season is upon us, too. Soon we’ll see promos for television specials like “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

It’ll be here before we know it. And that’s fine with me.
