Waiting for Ann Patchett?

While all you die-hard fan-types are waiting around for your reserved copy of Ann Patchett's latest, State of Wonder, why not take a spin with some of the books that she has put on her favorite books list?

The Daily Beast is currently featuring a short article by Ann Patchett herself listing "six books I've read in the last 12 months that I wish I was still reading." Is it even possible to ask for a better book recommendation than that?

I seriously think not.

Happy Reading!

More Summer Reading...

If you're still creating the perfect summer reading list (some of us will still be doing that in October), NPR has weighed in on the issue as has The Daily Beast's Book Beast. And surely these are only lists two and three of a multitude to come, so if you are already overwhelmed, here's my recommendation: either cancel all your plans and spend the entire summer reading every book recommended on every list (my ideal plan) or look for the common listings.
Then give your friendly librarians a call and ask us to put the titles on hold for you! And rest assured that as more Summer Must Read lists become available, you'll be able to find them right here. Happy Reading!
