Summer Reading 2013

Just some reading resources to get you started:

My favorite: NPR's Critics' Lists.

Publishers Weekly's Best Books Summer Reads.

Slate Magazine's Summer 2013 Staff Picks - brilliant and quirky.

This is the 5th year that the smart librarians over at Swarthmore college ask the faculty & staff to recommend a book read in the past year, or one they plan to read during the upcoming summer. You will find a wonderful mix of fiction and non-fiction, new and old classics, comedy and drama. Here is the 2013 list.

If you are one who'd rather work on your mind than your tan, here is The Washington Post's The innovator’s 2013 summer reading list: Eight books to make you smarter. Actually, you could work on both at the same time...

What's in my beach bag? I am taking the cue from the LA Times' Summer Reading Guide, with a total of 156 picks. Some are the hottest titles to hit the shelves this summer. Don't miss out.

You don't need me to remind you, Summer Game 2013 has started. Here is the info. to play.


I love how the SRP (summer reading program) encourages people of all ages to read and enjoy reading!!!!Go libraries!!!!

I look forward to this program every summer; so do my kids.

so cool

Thanks for the lists! If you track one down that's particularly good for non-fiction readers, that would be great.

Thanks for the great book lists. Now I'll never run out of books to read.
