Have You Selected Some Good Books for the Summer? Take a BREAK!

Readers,


I know that many of you are gearing up for the summer and many of us spend A LOT of time teaching, reading, and traveling in June, July, and August. I have a stack of books that I purchased from Barron's Bookstore before they went out of business in Colleyville and most of those books comprise my reading list! 


A Great Website - YourNextRead.com
When I find a book that I really love, I think that I will enter the title of the book on YourNextRead.com. Through this website, you can discover which books are similar to books that you enjoy!




Another Great Website - GoodReads.com
Lats summer, I became very interested in a website titled, Goodreads! This website enables users to rate and write comments about books for which they have an interest. In addition to the ratings, you can sign up for a reviewers list and the publishing companies can send the books to you via mail.




Enjoy your summer! Read some great books! What books do you plan to read this summer?


Oh yeah, I plan to finish reading The Help by the time the movie arrives in this area over the summer. This book is just VERY mentally exhausting! :)


Sincerely,


Millennial Professor - Jennifer T. Edwards, Ed.D.

  1. Plugging my favorite books and reading-related website: LibraryThing. Similar to Goodreads. They also have an Early Reviewers program where you can receive mostly pre-publication books to review. I get a lot because for four years now, I have tried to write a review of every book I read.

  2. Oh yeah, forgot to answer your question:

    Currently listening to The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey during my commute, and reading Salt by Mark Kurlansky at bedtime. I'll be listening to Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls next (for my book club's June discussion), followed by The Whiskey Rebels by David Liss (the July book), followed by Hector and the Secrets of Love by Fran├žois Lelord, which I'm supposed to receive from Early Reviewers!
