The Amazing Read: Summer Reading Challenge

amazing readWelcome to Summer Reading 2012!  This year, we'd like to challenge our readers to read a little differently, maybe outside of your normal comfort zone.  Each week, we'll post a different reading challenge and ask you to respond by sharing your reading choice through your Summer Reading program log, comments on the blog post, through FacebookTwitter or Pinterest, or just tell everybody you meet.

We'll start off easy with this week's challenge:  Read something that solves a mystery.  It can be from the mystery or thriller genres, a true crime book, an article that explains a scientific principle, a blog post that demystifies Stonehenge, well, you get the picture.  I'm going to start with the audiobook of Kate Atkinson's Started Early, Took My Dog.  What are  you reading?
