At last, a new books list

The semester is coming to a close; it's time to stock up on books to read over the summer break. We've got a long list of great fiction reads, not to mention fascinating nonfiction books--all perfect for pleasure reading.

My top choice for pleasure reading is definitely Terry Pratchett's Illustrated Wee Free Men. It's a riot! If you'll be traveling over the break, we've got two audio books for you: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Odd Thomas.

If you're like me, and use book covers to select your next book, take a look at this: By Its Cover: Modern American Book Cover Design.

If you'd rather spend your free time contemplating a poem, try this book: Catching Life by the Throat: How to Read Poetry and Why: Poems from Eight Great Poets.

If you're a gardening enthusiast, you might find some tips in this book: The Family Kitchen Garden.

And for when you really want to sink your teeth into a nonfiction book, we've got a list of intriguing titles:
