I recently received a call from blog reader Susan G. She is a longtime follower of Joyce's Choices and we seem to share similar views on books and authors. Susan had a few suggestions for  "beach reads"....although in this case, her suggestions have a lot more depth than the label suggests.

Here are two of her favorites....

A SIMPLE PLAN by Scott Smith

An amazing story that will sound like a modern day morality play...This is a debut novel also made into a film. The film and the book were both excellent...for a change!

HALF THE SKY by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn

This would be a "pseudo" beach read written by New York Times columnist and his wife, a former Times reporter. The book is a call to arms against the oppression of women and girls in the developing world of Africa and Asia. An inspirational book and a must read...on the beach or off!

Order these books directly from the blog. Click on the Amazon Search Box in the Sicebar.
