2010 Summer Reading Suggestions

Summer may be in full swing, but there is still time to add to your warm weather reading list. These are the eleven books I have most recommended to friends, family, and blog readers this year, and include both fiction and nonfiction selections.

All links go to my short reviews in either the 52 Books, 52 Weeks or Book Notes series.

In addition to the books listed, I also strongly recommend my next two 52 Books, 52 Weeks reading selections, the novels Little Bee by Chris Cleaves and The Thousand Summers of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell (reviews to come this weekend).
