The time to start plotting out the summer reading list has arrived. Before you know it beach time will be here and you will need to have selected your summer books. Many groups have released their list of must-read books which could act as a guide for what to get.

There are many people and groups who look forward to the summer reading list. What even amazes me more is how many people actually set out to read a whole book on vacation. They aren't going to put it down until it is done.

I will say an afternoon on the beach, feet in the sand, ocean lapping just inches from where you sit while you read the latest from the bestsellers list makes a relaxing afternoon. That may be why the Summer book list has such a fan club.

Barnes & Noble has released its ideas for "BEACH" reading this month.

I can't wait to glance down the list and prepare for summer reading satisfaction. After I consult a few more lists it is time to buy. Barnes and Noble has put out its beach list. Molly Reads has also put her two cents in with a list of 36 titles.

The New Yorker has created a list that is more open-ended. It is a list of the best books they read so far. This is a smart list to browse because there will be more books to choose from to fill your summer.
