What’s on your summer reading list?

Online Exclusive

Online Only, posted 4.20.09

In preparation for our upcoming July/August issue, we want to hear from you: What books do you, as a writer who reads deeply year-round, turn to in the warm months ahead? Perhaps you're a student who uses the break from required reading to revisit the classics. Or you’re a fiction writer who chooses to pull from the neglected poetry shelf. Or, perhaps, you indulge in the best-sellers to read what everyone else is talking about.

Post a comment and let us know what's on your list.
