Looking for reading suggestions? Here are some of my favorite resources:
No one does a better job than NPR. This Complete List has it all. Of special interest is Nancy Pearl Unearths Great Summer Reads. A good time to explore some "unjustly dusty" titles.
I always check out "My Guilty Pleasure" where writers talk about the books they love but are embarrassed to be seen reading.
I won't judge so go ahead, knock yourself out with L.A. Times list of Beach Reads. Hey, don't forget to check out the quirky ones.
If you are into regional literature, try suggestions from Deep South Magazine, an online magazine and blog committed to being a forum for Southern writers and showcasing Southern literature.
For the studious overachievers, there is always the UC Berkeley’s Summer Reading List for Freshmen. They promised that it isn’t homework. Ha! And you believe them? Each year, Berkeley asks the faculty and staff to offer what they think are the best readings centered on a particular theme. This year’s theme is “Revolutions.”
Seriously, do take a look at Publishers Weekly's Best Summer Books. Now you know what is in my beach bag.
Heading off to summer camp? Horn Book wants to make sure you go with some good reads.
