Summer Reads

My already impossibly long list of books to read grew substantially after listening to NPR's Talk of the Nation on Memorial Day. book critic Laura Miller (one of my favorites), blogger Maud Newton, and local author ZZPacker (Drinking Coffee Elsewhere) were the guests and together, with some help from listener call-ins, came up with an eclectic, very intriguing summer reading list. It sounded so good that I wanted to spend the rest of the day sprawled out on the couch, engrossed in a good book. (Alas, not an option.)

So, if you're looking for a few good beach reads, you might want to listen to the 35 minute audio What to Read this Summer?
Summer reading means some tough decisions: the mystery or memoir? "Chick lit" or literary fiction? With help from some experts, it's time to craft you're summer reading list.
