Wenslauskis: Beach reads for the adventurous
Warm weather always brings library requests for “beach reads.”
Whether you’re actually heading to the beach, or just to the pool or backyard, summer is a perfect time for engrossing books that can be finished in a weekend or afternoon off. While recent best sellers will usually do for most, I like it when members ask for quick reads that are off the beaten path. Here are a few books I’ve been recommending this summer for adventurous readers.
For thriller and mystery readers, there’s “Rogue Male” by Geoffrey Household. Originally published in 1939, it follows an expert hunter who gets caught stalking with his rifle near the compound of a fictional European dictator. The high tension tale of capture, escape and survival that follows is one you’ll want to finish in one sitting.
