What's In Store...At R.J. Julia

Now that summer has finally arrived, stop by R.J. Julia for the perfect book to pack in your beach bag. (Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen!)

Do you remember the commercial catch phrase  "When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen"?  Well, that's exactly how I feel about RJ Julia owner Roxanne Coady when she discusses books.  Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the fabulous event, "Cool Reads for Hot Days", where Roxanne recommended the best books to tote in your beach bag this summer.  So along with your beach pass, a cool drink and a cute pair of flip flops, here is a list of must reads (of course, available at R. J. Julia!):

1) The Dovekeepers-Alice Hoffman

2) The Lifeboat-Charlotte Rogan

3) How It All Began-Penelope Lively

4) A Partial History of Lost Causes-Jennifer Dubois

5) Crossing the Borders of Time-Leslie Maitland

6) Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal-Jeanette Winterson

7) The Art of Hearing Heartbeats-Jan Philipp Sendker

8) Behind the Beautiful Forevers-Katherine Boo

9) Long Drive Home-Will Allison

10) The Flight of Gemma Hardy-Margot Livesey

11) Newlyweds-Nell Freudenberger

12) This is Where I Leave You-Jonathan Tropper

13) Turn of Mind-Alice LaPlante

14) By Nightfall-Michael Cunningham

15) The Tiger's Wife-Tea Obreht

16) The Invisible Bridge-Julie Orringer

17) Catherine the Great-Robert K. Massie
