    Lightweight beach reads are too often labeled as fluff. Although, as you search for the perfect book to toss into your tote this weekend, just remember that the good reads don't have to weigh you down. That's what your industrial size bottle of sunscreen is for.

    Whether you're into graphic novels or essays, strictly adult lit or YA, there's a quick read for you. These under 200-page volumes cover feminism, racism, and international politics. Some are funny and some are heartbreaking. There are award winners and titles from indie presses that are sure to impress even your most literary friend. There's even a book-length poem, a perfect indulgence for a lazy summer afternoon.
