Pretty soon the lazy days of summer will be upon you and what better way to spend a sunny Portland day (or perhaps even the occasional rainy one) than by reading a great book? I’ve compiled the various compilations of recommended summer reading & you’re bound to find a book (or five):

Publisher’s Weekly offers up reviews of their top ten summer reads with topics ranging from a New York detective story to lost love in Ireland,  mermaid visions and a re-telling of One Thousand and One Nights.

Goodreads wins the “longest list” category (28,000+) of members’ popular summer read picks.

NPR has an entire section dedicated to summer reading as well as their top five teen reads.

Fiction and non-fiction, old and new – Slate’s summer reading list for 2013 has it all.

The LA Times recommends 165 different titles so there’s sure to be something there for every type of reader.

Beaverton City Library has booklists just for teens & if you liked Percy Jackson or The Hunger Games, they’ve got recommendations for you.

Speaking of libraries, our very own Multnomah County Library turns reading into a game for all to play & hey, prizes!

All in all, this should be a great summer for reading.

What books do you recommend to your fellow Cardinal? Let us know in the comments.
