"Tortilla Flat" by John Steinbeck.
— Olayinka Hassan, Chicago
"From the Grand Canyon to the Great Wall: Travelers' Best, Worst and Most Ridiculous Stories From the Road" edited by David Slenk. It's a travel book that includes stories from multiple authors. It's like a vacation in a book!
— Stephanie, Chicago
I don't know about the beach, but I once took "The World Is Flat" by Thomas L. Friedman on a mountain hike and loved the irony.
— Misty S. Brown
"Jaws" by Peter Benchley, because I love to see the expressions on other beach-goers faces.
— Rod Doty
"A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson. I'm actually reading it during my commute, which is sort of like the beach, only with air conditioning and less sand.
— Patrick Rollens, Chicago
