What do you like to read in the summer?
NPR did a poll and came up with what they call the 100 Best Beach Books Ever. For the record, I’ve read 47 of these. It’s over 50 if you count the ones I didn’t finish (yes, Snow Falling on Cedars, I’m looking at you).
What do you think of the list?
Personally, I’m not sure I want to visit the beach where The Road by Cormac McCarthy is considered light summer reading. Just sayin’.
Things that make sense to me for summer reading:
- Series. I’ve torn through the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. I noticed he didn’t make the list, but the Harry Potter series did. Also good summer reading.
- Big, fat books. I first read Gone With The Wind during the summer.
I think there’s something about the stretch of uninterrupted time (vacation from school or work) that lends itself to getting immersed in either a series or a big, fat book.
