Summer 2018: Labor Day Weekend Beach Reads | Res Ipsa

The first rule of Book Club is: you must talk about Book Club! The second rule of Book Club is: you must talk about Book Club!

As summer 2018 winds down with the long Labor Day Weekend, we wanted to share with you our favorite beach reads this summer. Welcome to the Res Ipsa Book Club. Many of the recommendations below came from our customers in our flagship store on Nantucket. Our list features numerous NYT best sellers, critically acclaimed book-to-film adaptions, and the two books that have most inspired our journey - Shoe Dog & the Alchemist. All the books below we highly recommend or come highly recommended for someone looking for a good story to get you through the long Labor Day Weekend.  


Fight Club: A Novel
Fight Club
"The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club!" It speaks for itself (unless you're a book club).

The Alchemist 
The Alchemist
We saved the best (and our all-time favorite) for last, of course. If you want something good to happen for you this year, it will. At least, that's what this book will help you believe about yourself and the universe around you. 


Americanah: A Novel
“From one of the world’s great contemporary writers comes the story of two Nigerians making their way in the U.S. and the UK, raising universal questions of race and belonging, the overseas experience for the African diaspora, and the search for identity and a home.” —Barack Obama

Shoe Dog
Shoe Dog
If you want to create something in life, read this book. If you love a brand (any brand), read this book. If you want to be blown away by a story, read this book. Just do it. 

The Four Agreements
The Four Agreements
One of the books most dearest to us, the Four Agreements will change your life for the best. If you're seeking the truth, pick up this quick read.
