Summer Reading

Few things complement the lazy days of summer like a deeply engrossing book. Picking that book can be an endeavor. From bestsellers to classics, the selection seems endless. The following resources can help you zero in on winners:

Suggested Reading Lists

  • Looking for a way to draw kids away from the television and into the pages of a book? Amazon's list of suggested reading for children nine and older includes authors like Gary Paulsen ("Brian's Return"), Norton Juster ("The Phantom Tollbooth") and J.K. Rowling (the Harry Potter series). Amazon also offers a children's book suggestion list with further ideas.

  • Oprah's Book Club has turned previously unknown titles into overnight successes. From the home page, visitors can keep track of latest selections and explore previous picks.

  • The New York Times Bestseller Lists are also packed with recent favorites.

Great Books

  • The Great Books Index outlines top texts in English translation. Visitors can search by author or title.




  • Find out what writers are reading this year at Authors' Summer Reading Lists from AuthorsOnTheWeb.com.

  • The Great Books Foundation is an organization dedicated to fostering the exploration of classic texts. This site offers a number of lists of suggested works, as well as discussion groups, study aides and online order forms.
