Summer Reading 101.

Via on Jun 28, 2012

I love summer reading.

Sitting on the beach, under a favorite tree or in a hammock, escaping into a book is one of my favorite summer treats.

But it’s tough to pick new books sometimes. Word-of-mouth is my usual plan of attack. Or book lists on the internet. Or wander around the bookstore to see what looks interesting.

I’m in need of a summer read right now. I finally broke down and read The Hunger Games (and will probably pick up the sequels) but I want something a little meatier, something good.

If you’re in the same boat, skip Fifty Shades and check out this flowchart from to find yourself a new book:
