Books on the beach... I mean, there's an entire industry that cranks out "beach reads." Personally, I don't understand the desire to read lighter fare just because it's hot out, but I still use the summer as an excuse to indulge in genre paperbacks. Brooklyn has a long strip of beaches on its Atlantic-abutting south end, but they get less populated the farther east you go, making Manhattan the ideal local spot to read with the least amount of typical beach distractions.
