Summertime and the Reading is Easy

"We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become."

-Ursula K. Le Guin -

Summer offers the time to veer off from your usual routine into uncharted territory, which may include traveling, road trips, family reunions, or college visits. For many, traveling may not require much more than a comfortable chair or beach blanket and a few well-chosen books that will transport you into another place, time or life. Explore the books on this year’s summer reading lists, that may take you to places you had wanted to discover and others you hadn't even considered.
