Summer readin', had me a blast

Salon has chosen a few books for summer reading based on the following criteria:

We've scoured publishers' lists for suspenseful, surprising, entertaining and intelligent new novels that are decently, gracefully, even beautifully written. We're willing to swear that if you pack any one of these titles in your carry-on bag or beach tote, you won't wind up regretting it and rifling through the hotel's depressing collection of old, beat-up Nora Roberts paperbacks.

Sounds good to me. They include the Ruins which I am desperate to read. For those on the politically Red side (my how words can change in meaning,) take a look at National Review's beach reading list. You'll of course find the dreadful Anne Coulter, but interesting choices too.
