In my family, my daughter Bryn (who will be entering grade 6 in the fall) has been flying through The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. I have also enjoyed the additional reading time that the summer provides. My most recent completions have been Clay Shirky's Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age and A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change by Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown. More of my recently completed books are on my book shelf on the right side of the blog.
You'll notice the links to the books I mentioned are to a site called GoodReads which is a cool on-line site where readers can share their thoughts on books that they have read. It is definitely worth a look whether you are a casual or a voracious reader.
In addition, here are a couple of other places where you can find books worth checking out:
Barnes and Nobles Teen Bestsellers
Amazon's Teen Best Sellers
101 Great Books For The College-Bound Reader from the College Board
I look forward to hearing what you are reading!
