My Favorite Five Summer Reading Books 2012

Registration for the Summer Reading Program is officially closed, but if you did previously register, there's still time to log your minutes and titles for a chance to win some pretty great prizes

As the Summer winds down, I'd like to take some time to reflect on my favorite books from the Summer, and to provide my favorites here in list form.  Hopefully, you, reader, will use this as a source of recommended leisure reading.  Follow the links to find the titles in HCPL's catalog and, most importantly, enjoy.

My Favorite Five Summer Reading Books 2012:


White Teeth by Zadie Smith

The Floating Opera & The End of the Road by John Barth


Everything that Rises Must Converge by Flannery O'Connor


Goodbye, Columbus & Five Short Stories by Philip Roth


The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith


So those are my top five favorite Summer reads (although I must give Alison Bechdel's graphic novel Fun Home an honorable mention).  But what about you?  What did you read this Summer?  What was your favorite Summer read?  More importantly, did you log them for our Summer Reading Program?  Maybe you're just not that into winning free stuff.
