Share Your Summer Reading List
Tuesday, June 05, 2012 - 12:27 PM
What’s on your summer reading list?
On Thursday, The Learning Network, The Times’s teaching and learning blog, invites you to share what you’re reading this summer on Twitter using the hashtag #summerreading. You can tweet recommendations, photos of your stack of beach books, or more general thoughts on why summer seems to be the season for reading. The best responses will be posted on the blog.
Over at Motherlode, The Times’s parenting blog, KJ Dell’Antonia suggests two recent titles that a parent and an older child both might enjoy: Jodi Picoult’s “Between the Lines,” written with her teenage daughter, and Carl Hiaasen’s “Chomp,” the fourth children’s book by the humor writer.
The Learning Network is also holding its third annual summer reading contest, open to students 13 to 25.
Beginning June 15, choose the story, photo, graphic, podcast or other bit of content — from mango madness to opossums on the D train — that most interested you in The Times in the past week and write a short response to it. Winning submissions will be posted online. Details are available here.
