Summer Reading 2011 Survey

Summer is (finally) here—and so, most likely, is your school’s annual “summer reading” program! We love this time of year because we get to find out which of our books students will be reading by the pool, in the park, or at the beach.

To no surprise, classics of ours like To Kill A Mockingbird, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and The Alchemist have made their way onto summer reading lists. In addition to these, other well received titles are being read across the country, such as:

How to Read Literature Like A Professor by Thomas C. Foster

- The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
- The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

This is by no means an exhaustive list; we want you to enjoy your vacation too! What are your students reading this summer? Let us know!

Feel free to comment below—then head over to and fill out the form. We’ll randomly pick 5 to send a summer reading “starter kit” of some of our books for you to enjoy throughout these gloriously warm months!
