Summer Reading

June 3, 2012

A few of you kind souls have shared with me that you visit Bedside Table Books on your phones when you’re standing in front of the bookshelf in a store or library … that you drop in to the site to find a few recommended titles. If this sounds like you, then bookmark this entry. I dedicate the following list to the shelf-stalkers!

It’s that time of year again – the Summer Reading Lists are emerging everywhere in the media, on-line and off. I’ve been collecting titles that have piqued my interest in some way for months now and thought I’d just post the whole darn catalogue here for you to ponder along with me. Now a few of these are sooo fresh off the press that they haven’t quite made it to the shelves yet so be patient – a list this long is going to take us a while to get through, maybe until next summer! Some seem plain old fun (beach worthy) and some seem thought-provoking (for rainy days) – the whole gamut. So dust off ye olde beach bag and start packing!

Please feel welcome to add your own recommendations and discoveries in the Comments! (As always, click on the cover to learn more about the book)

  1. This is the best summer reading list I’ve seen! Much more intriguing than those I’ve seen in newspapers and magazines. I especially want to read Tigers in Red Weather and The Receptionist.
    Thank you! I will definitely consult the list for my summer reading needs.

    Thank you for your kind enthusiasm! Happy reading and be sure to let us know your thoughts as you go along. I’ve just begun Wife 22 and it’s pretty fun – in an angsty poignant hilarious way!
