Summer Reading Lists 2012

Source: Simon Tong (

The following is my second annual list of summer reading lists. Readers who enjoyed my 2011 list of summer reading lists may notice that many big media outlets such as the LA Times and Newsweek have yet to release lists, so be sure to check back here. I’ll continue to update this page all month.


6/11 Update:

New lists have been added, including the LA Times list, which earns the award of Best Book List Format/Presentation from me again this year.

Books appearing on many lists this year include The Marriage Plot, The Art of Fielding, and Fifty Shades of Grey. Let the reading frenzy begin.
