Summer Book Roundups

I was going to call it a “beach read roundup” but I don’t know how many of us can afford to go away on vacation this summer, but we can always find a book to escape into.

NPR features Susan Stamberg’s annual bookseller-picks including Rona Brinlee from The Bookmark’s choice: City of Thieves, by David Benioff.

USA Today has the most comprehensive list of summer reads here.

New York Post made Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger their top pick on their list.

Real Simple magazine went to the authors for their summer picks, asking Augusten Burroughs, Jackie Collins and Danielle Steel among others. James Patterson chose No Country for Old Men, by Cormac McCarthy as his “one day read.”

Wall Street Journal’s list features David Sederis’ When You Are Engulfed in Flames.

The Daily News geared their list for the guys and suggests Mike Edison’s I Have Fun Everywhere I Go: (insert world’s longest subtitle here).
