2010 Summer Reading List of Lists

by Jesse M

Looking for something good to read this summer but don’t know where to start?  For several years now the website Rebecca’s Pocket has compiled a comprehensive list of the many disparate summer reading lists published by various periodicals and institutions. You can check out this year’s reading list here. There are already dozens of lists to choose from, and more are added on a weekly basis.

Some of the more interesting lists include one from New York Magazine featuring six writers each recommending favorite books from their chosen genre, a Los Angeles Times article describing the placement and influence of literature in the recently concluded television series “Lost“, and another compiled by NPR that features picks made by a trio of independent booksellers.

There are also over a dozen lists targeted towards children and teens, just scroll to the bottom of the page.

And once you’ve acquired some reading material, don’t forget to sign up and participate in one of our summer reading programs for kids, teens, and adults!

I love book lists, so I wanted to thank you for picking Rebecca’s Pocket for your post. I’ve never seen it, and it will keep me entertained for a while.
