Since July is right in the middle of summer vacation, the challenge this month will be to read a book that has a beach setting. (The whole book doesn’t have to be at the beach, but at least part of it does.) Some authors like Nancy Thayer and Dorothea Benton Frank have quite a few novels with beach settings, but you don’t have to read a romance novel. Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” ends on a beach and Peter Benchley’s “Jaws” is set on a beach as well. Ask a librarian if you need suggestions.
