What makes a good summer nonfiction read?

This week I made some recommendations on that subject over at BlogHer as part of their ongoing summer reading coverage. Here’s what I was thinking about as I put together my list:

When I think about nonfiction reads for the summer, I always return to books that are both a lot of fun to read and that don’t take a lot of brainpower to parse through. The authors with books on this list are definitely smart, but they’ve also found a way to make their topics — everything from the birth of forensic toxicology to the history of a favorite summer toy — easily digestible even after a margarita or two.

I hope you’ll take a look at the post and offer up your own suggests for great summer nonfiction!
