Reading Lists for Summer 2007?

There's a new book coming called Summer Reading, a novel. Does it belong on your list?

We'll do our best to let you know of some good new books throughout the summer. But how about suggesting other titles and authors you've liked so that others may have good choices from which to draw? Both old and new books, fiction and nonfiction, even plays, anthologies, and collections are welcome.

Readers and list makers, let's make some Summer reading lists:

1 - What book did you most enjoy reading? Why?

2 - Which book did you enjoy least? Why?

3 - Which book that hasn't been written yet would you like to read?

4 - Who is your favorite author? Why?

5 - In your favorite, or guity pleasure, genre (i.e., mystery, romance, fantasy, sci-fi, literary, etc) whose book would you give to someone else for the best summer read?

Also, as we've said, The Glendale Public Library is happy to provide our community of readers with a new and exciting service—a customized reading list, tailored to your personal reading tastes and interests called "Looking for a Good Book?". You can stop in and pick up a form and drop it off at any of the Glendale Public Library branches.

My favorite book this spring is "The Year of Fog" by Michelle Richmond. Well-written page-turner and it's set in San Francisco!

I'm dying to read "Second Chance" by Jane Green. It drops June 19 and I can't wait to check it out.

One favorite author?! How about a few of my favorites: Jodi Picoult, Lolly Winston, Jane Green and Anna Maxted. In my eyes, these women never disappoint.

I just read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. It's not exactly light reading, but I thought it was just great. An interesting picture of what a post-apocalyptic world would be like and a very moving father-son story. It gets a little harrowing in places though - be warned.
