Forever, it seems, my friends and family have a June conversation that focuses on this title question. Favored authors and titles are bandied back and forth; someone chases down a pen & paper; the tech-savvy quickly text in their new recommends. As I am participating in a 30-Day Blog Challenge this month, I thought I would take a brief survey of co-bloggers' selections for summer reads Check out the post. Share your favorites and list those you plan to read this summer. By the way, Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes was a hands-down favorite! What book is your all-time fav? Your top choice for a summer read?

  • Thanks!
    It's great to find out such diverse selections!

  • I'm reading *It's a Boy* and "*It's a Girl* - two collections of essays by women writers, on having a boy or having a girl, edited by Andi Buchanan, from Seal Press.

    And I'm also reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Because everyone else on the subway over here seems to be and I got curious at last!

    Love that PM started this thread. Thanks, PM!

  • Loved The Guernsey... book! Thanks for 2 favs!

  • I just finished reading, "The Guernsey LIterary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows about the German Occupation on a Channel Island (Guernsey) written in letters. Full of quirky characters, tragedy, and love. Two more on this topic are: " Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnayand "Those Who Save Us" by Jenna Blum. On a lighter note, Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilt series are delightful. Light reading for summer.

  • Great start for making a list of summer reads. Thanks, Ocala, for the premier titles!

    I am currently reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. It is about how what we eat and where our food comes from effects our health, economy, and environment. I highly recommend it. I also recommend "Poisonwood Bible." Though it is a long book, and not always an easy read, it is a great story and well worth the time it takes to read it.
