It's barely June, but various newspapers, magazines and websites have been trotting out their "summer reading lists" for several weeks now. I'm not really sure I get the need for a "reading list" specifically for summer. Ok, sure, maybe it made sense when I was in school and there was an obvious break in my daily routine; but now I'm even less likely to have the time (or desire) to read during the summer than any other season. Besides, what about those readers in the Southern Hemisphere? I imagine that most LitKicks visitors have a year-round reading list that doesn't depend too much on the calendar. With that in mind, what exactly are you reading? Anything new, anything good? Tell us a bit about what you've been reading lately or what you're planning to tackle next. And if you happen to have a summer reading list, we'd love to hear what's on it -- but don't be surprised if we don't get around to checking out those books until autumn.
