From a retelling of Shakespeare’s "The Taming of the Shrew" set in present-day Baltimore to a world where humans live among dragons, we’ve got summer reading picks perfect for lazy days at the beach or long flights out of town. Looking to dive into American history while lounging by the pool? Try a humorous account of swashbuckling Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. Want to escape to 1940's New York? How about a thriller complete with German saboteurs and the Mafia. We’ve got mysteries, memoirs, and more.
