Literary Links for Summer Reading

Summer's here, & with it the lists of recommended reads for the "beach" (or wherever you'll be lolling away your hot summer days).  Here are some lists recommended by The Reader's Advisor Online:

Books to Bury Yourself In

Indie Booksellers Target Summer's Best Reads

Women's Summer Fiction

Men's Summer Fiction

10 Books That Will Fry Your Mind This Summer

11 excellent novels for summer reading

Summer fiction: around the world in 24 books

& of course, in honor of our Summer Reading program, "One World, Many Stories/Un Mundo, Muchas Historias", there are also "Novel Destination" booklists created by the staff to consider!  Challenge yourself to read around the world, or across the states, with these two collections of booklists. Each list gives facts about the country or state in question, the library call numbers for nonfiction, and selected literature to read. Another option might be the website Bibliotravel "for books that take you away". Also, check out the library's Booklists for Adults & Teens, Monster Mashups, &  Sherlock Holmes Universe.  Don't forget to share what you're reading in the abcreads book banter forums!
