2011 Online Summer Reading Lists

Summer reading lists are everywhere this time of year, and as an inveterate list reader, I couldn't be happier. Their themes may differ, from books to take to the beach to the best science fiction or romance titles of the season, but the shared goal is to get people reading. In this post I will aggregate summer reading lists I find online, from blogs, magazines, newspapers, and other websites. Feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me with a link to lists I have missed, I will be updating the list frequently.
