With our first ever HSL Book Club just around the corner, we’ve been talking a lot about reading lately (also, we are a library). In case the subject matter of our inaugural book, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, isn’t your cup of tea, we have lists of other summer reading picks for you this week. Check out the links below to peruse summer reading lists compiled by those in the know so you can pick the titles you want to read. Hurry, summer goes by fast! So head to the library, check out a lounge chair, park yourself on the Tavistock Green, and enjoy some leisure reading.
1. Real Simple
The magazine that wants to help you simplify your life brings you these leisure reading picks, all recommended by notable authors and other experts in the field.
2. Gates Notes
Did you know that Bill Gates (yes, that Bill Gates, from Microsoft fame) is famously known for reading over 50 books a year? Here is his summer 2016 reading list!
Goodreads, the experts in all things books, is always a go-to resource for reading lists. These titles may be meant for school reading, but the list contains so many classics—as well as guilty-pleasure young adult reads—that it is worth checking out.
Of course Amazon is in on the book list game, too. After all, they started as an online book seller. The best part about Amazon’s list? You can read their list and purchase your book (in print or as an e-book) with one click.
NPR’s Nancy Pearl is my favorite resource for those hidden gems you just don’t hear about anywhere else. This is her 2015 list of “under-the-radar reads.”
Happy reading from all of us!
