Help NPR Pick the Best Beach Books

best_beach_books.jpgStarting this week, NPR Books has called for readers to nominate “uber beach picks” for an upcoming feature about the Best Beach Books of All Time.

On July 15, NPR will let listeners vote on their favorite nominated books–the final list will be unveiled on July 30. The program is part of an ongoing Summer Books series. If you need inspiration, the Philadelphia Examiner interviewed authors about their summer reading.

Here’s more from the NPR release: “Discussion is underway as reader suggestions pour in, nominating everything from Yann Martel‘s ‘The Life of Pi’ to ‘Songs of the Humpback Whale’ by Jodi Picoult to James Ellroy‘s ‘L.A. Confidential.’”
