Do cybersecurity professionals ever relax? Some tell us that they don't read cyber-themed novels in their off-hours, but we know there are still many readers out there who can't get enough of what's become a burgeoning genre in the last decade or more: the spy novel tinged with lots of good security themes and tech.

We asked some security experts what they've been reading — and what they would recommend to their friends and peers for a summer cyber-read on the beach. This is obviously not an exhaustive treatment, so please share your faves with us via Twitter or LinkedIn

"The summer reading list is chock-full of a variety of books that would appeal to different types of tastes, some more technical, some more sensationalized, some fact, and some fiction," says Chris Grove, director of cybersecurity strategy at Nozomi Networks. "Anyone aspiring to get into cybersecurity should pick a few of these great books to get started on peeking behind the curtains to see one of the most rewarding and exciting careers one can choose."

Happy summer reading!
