Summer Reading List


I posted a request for summer reading suggestions on Facebook and Twitter. There were a lot of replies and suggestions, some I would not have considered had I not asked.

My summer usually begins with a re-read of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This year I am re-reading Saul Bellow’s The Adventures of Augie March instead. If there’s time, I’ll read something by Joan Didion from the 1970s and some William Carlos Williams.

In no particular order, here is a gleaned list of reading suggestions from social media:

Water by Jennifer Wilson

Dark Money by Jane Mayer

My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem

Diet for a Hot Planet by Anna Lappe

The Other Side of Paradise: Life in the New Cuba by Julia Cooke

Cloudsplitter by Russell Banks

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.

Have a great summer of reading!
