Last Thursday's Metro Pulse
had a cover story
about what various people in Knoxville have on their summer reading list.
As an avid reader, I'm always interested in what others are reading and what they recommend. I can't begin to count the number of marvelous books I've found because of someone recommending a book or an author to me. (That said, I still like to read the book and make up my own mind....)
I'll admit I'm not just curious about what people are reading, but what draws them to the book? Why did they pick the book? What about it interests them?
I've got a large list of books on my "to be read" list and I'd say a good number of them qualify as "summer time reading." You know, those books that are perfect to enjoy on a warm afternoon with a cool bottle of water while sitting by the pool. (Or on the beach, if you get there....) And, of course, a certain book about some boy-wizard is on the list...maybe you've heard of it? I think it comes out sometime soon. Hopefully the nice people at the bookstore will know about it and can help me out.
So, I'm curious. Besides Harry Potter
, what's on your summer reading list? What have you read or what do you want to read this summer? Any good recommendations?
