Summer reading is different from any other reading. It is unrushed. It is guiltless pleasure. It is often done lounging on a chair at the beach or in a hammock in the backyard instead of wrapped up in five sweaters, your shoulders up to your ears, in front of a winter fire. It is a mental vacation.
I spent one summer reading nothing but John Updike. Whew.
I understand if you have a reading challenge to meet, like getting through the complete collection of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle before the next season of Sherlock. But you have to take a breather every once in awhile, and when you come up for air, you’re going to want something different. We’ve got just the thing.
