message 2: by Cathy (new)

Cathy I love most of these books .


message 3: by Kat (new)

Kat If you love memoir, the book, The End of Boys was a great one sitting read. It came to me highly suggested. There are some other great books on this list too. Little Bee was a really great read as well.

message 8: by Tmclark (new)

Tmclark I'm going to have to come back to this list just to update my To-Reads! There are a ton on here that sound great.


message 9: by Natasha (new)

Natasha There are many books on this list that I have already read that I was not sure to list on the summer reads, since I wouldn't be rereading these books for a little while. I think I'm going to have to edit my choices. I'm so far behind in my reading challenge and think that it is foolish to raise the ante on my goal without getting into sync where I have to be to meet my goals. Either way I am so glad that so many people picked books that may not have been something that they would have looked at before the creation of this list. Did anyone vote for a book that they had already read to encourage others to enjoy the book that they had read?


message 10: by Claire (new)

Claire So many good books to choose from!!!!!!!!!!!!1


message 11: by Maxine (new)

Maxine Bringenberg The Dark Age Survivors of the Pulse

This is a great book, and a very compelling storyline! You should also check out the prequel, The Great Collapse: Survivors of the Pulse!

Kwesi 章英狮 I really enjoy most of the titles in the list but I chose the most easiest and logically books that I consider as beach reads or summer reads. Well, we need sun, sands and friends!

Angela How is Lord of the Rings a one day read?

Angela wrote: "How is Lord of the Rings a one day read?"

Yes, that takes at least a week. I don't understand this one day concept.


message 20: by Ami (new)

Ami Should a great selection! I love so many of these books and many others are ones I plan to read.

Ahh that explains it. I thought it meant the books are so good you can't put them down and they only take a day or so to read.


message 24: by Hilary (new)

Hilary 56. :)


message 25: by Julie (new)

Julie Rose read 46 of them so far...it's almost fall but I can still pretend it's summer & read the rest, right? :)

message 31: by Jack (new)

Jack Hi everyone,

I have created a new group called Goodreads All Sorts and I'd love for people to join it or just even just give it a look. It's a group that discusses anything and everything. There will be monthly group reads, movies, and music. There is a folder for everything you could think of. I'd really like if people could spread the word because I'd love for the group to be a success. Here is the link to the group:

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/9...

Thanks very much,
Jack :-)
