make a summer reading list

A guide by Claudia (Hartford, CT)

Products sampled from this guide:
My absolute favorite time to read is during the months of summer. For me, there's just a little more time in each day, and there is something so gratifying about sitting on a porch with a glass of tea and a great book. Around April of every year, I start compiling my Summer Reading List. I try to include a variety of genres. It's summer, so I always include a couple of chick-lits, but I love memoirs and some slightly heavier nonfiction books too. I like to mix it up week by week, so here's a list I've finally finished compiling for the summer of 2010.
