Book Chat: Ideal Summer Reading

The topic of July 2012 Book Chat is IDEAL SUMMER READING. You can talk about what you look for in summer reading picks, what your reading habits are in summer, or just give us your list of best summer reading books - how ever you want to approach the chat!

  1. None of these categories really surprise me. I think I Capture the Castle is a particularly great summer book, and the summer of sixth grade stands out to me because that's when my family moved to Ohio. A girl who lived near me walked with me to the library and told me I ought to read those books. We obviously became good friends, and I met another friend once school started because I was carrying the book around with my trapper keeper.

    Uh, let's talk about how I just finished Bake Sale and need to get my hands on Robot Dreams now now now.

    And I haven't read any of your magical realism books except The Time Traveler's Wife, but they are things I want to read. Someday, someday.

  2. For me, summer reading is easy: read as many books as possible from all those i buy during the year but never have the time to read because of my studies :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
