What are you reading this summer?

Daryl Paranada Jun 25, 2010

Summer is here and that means beaches, vacations, and finally getting to that book you haven’t had time to read all year.

To assist with your summer reading list, Marketplace is compiling a collection of book recommendations and reviews for a series called Summer Reading. Five of our regular guests and commentators will be on the show during the week of June 28th to tell us one book — any book — they plan to read this summer. The week-long series kicks off Monday with economist Betsey Stevenson, who will be talking about her summer read: “For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage”

To go along with our radio series, we’re building an online collection of your suggestions for good summer reads. All summer long we’ll be compiling your book recommendations and reviews to include in our Summer Reading collection. Here’s how you can participate:

POST YOUR REVIEW ON TWITTER
Send us your recommendation and review via Twitter in 140 characters or less. Just include the hashtag #SummerReading (sorry, there’s 14 characters down the drain right there) along with the book title and author. Then use the remaining characters to give us your take.

POST YOUR REVIEW AS A COMMENT
If you don’t want to be limited to 140 characters, post your recommendation and review as a comment in this blog post.

SEND US YOUR REVIEW BY EMAIL
Click here to use our contact form to send in a book recommendation and review and we’ll add it to the Summer Reading collection.

Happy reading!
