Want to create your own reading list this summer and don't know where to start? Why not try a few of these tips below to search for some summer reads:
Start with your reading backlog
Do you have a pile of books you have been meaning to read, but have had the chance yet? Try going through all the books and remove any that you realistically are not going to read. Any that are left will be a great starting point for your list!
Social Book Sites
Have you ever tried looking at a social book site for recommendations? Sites like Spine Breakers, Goodreads and Library Thing are fantastic places with lots of book reviews from people who love to read!
Ask your friends!
