Summer Reading Redux
Posted by: admin

Here are a few more lists of books to read this summer,  courtesy of NPR.

37180227True to form, Nancy Pearl’s picks  are an eclectic mix, including a teen novel (The Disreputable History of  Frankie Landau Banks by E. Lockhart and a graphic novel (The Photographer  by Emmanuel Guibert and others).  Among her other suggestions: The Color of Lightning by Paulette Jiles, The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway,  What Happened to Anna K. by Irina Reyn, and an older title,  A Far Cry from Kensington, by the wonderful Muriel Spark. Simon & Schuster has a good discussion guide for What Happened to Anna K. and offers some ideas for enhancing your discussion as well.  Serve vodka, for example, which, come to think of it, might also facilitate one of the other suggestions, reading Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina.

 

339221421The Independent Booksellers picks include The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone, The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa,  Stone’s Fall by Iain Pears,  A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, and Atmospheric Disturbances by Rivka Galchen.  I found discussion guides for Atmospheric Disturbances and The Housekeeper and the Professor on BookBrowse, and  for A Reliable Wife on Reading Group Guides.
