The search for the perfect summer read not so easy for some

June 26, 2012

Chicago Tribune columnist Barbara Brotman shares her challenges in finding the perfect summer vacation book in this only slightly tongue-in-cheek article from yesterday’s paper. When one has limited packing space and a desire for balance between a gripping page-turner and a book that allows for interludes of oceanside daydreaming (or mountain vista gazing), the quest becomes all-important. Brotman’s techniques include pestering family members to find out what they’re reading and visiting the various book recommendations website like Goodreads and Novelist. I’ll add another–EPL’s Staff Recommendations page. Happy reading, everyone! (Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen.)
