Seven books that are not beach reading

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged seven books not to bring to the beach, including:
On The Beach, by Nevil Shute

Ain’t nobody handles the apocalyptic genre like an Australian, and Nevil Shute is no exception. This book takes place on the beach…where a bunch of survivors are quietly waiting to be killed by nuclear radiation. There isn’t enough sunscreen in the world to make this lighthearted reading.
Read about the other entries on the list.

On the Beach is among Ben H. Winters's three books to read before the end of the world, Sloane Crosley's five depressing beach reads, and Michael Evans's top six books on nuclear war.
