Page-turners for the beach, the pool, the lake, the hammock, and/or that cozy sofa near the air-conditioning unit.

Our longtime colleague Nancy Pearl joins us on ST to share some can't-miss summer reading suggestions: fiction, non-fiction, history, biography, and so forth. A bestselling author and retired librarian, Nancy (who's based in Seattle and is a former Tulsan) has been making occasional recommendations to book-loving KWGS listeners for decades. Here's the list of titles that she tells us about today --

Peter S. Canellos, "The Great Dissenter"

Nina de Gramont, "The Christie Affair"

Charles Finch, "What Just Happened: Notes on a Long Year"

Bonnie Garmus, "Lessons in Chemistry"

Laird Hunt, "Zorrie"

Gish Jen, "Thank You, Mr. Nixon"

Julie Otsuka, "The Swimmers"
