I only recently realized how much NPR has to say about books. I love listening to their stories about new books on the radio, but I've discovered their blog and some of their amazing writers simply by "liking" them on facebook. Seriously though, I'd love to be a book blogger for them. NPR... hit me up.
I came across this gem today and now I have so many more books to put on my TBR list. At the moment, I can't remember if I've ever shared my Shakespeare obsession with you guys, but suffice it to say, it exists and anything that plays on the Bard's masterful works (provided they do so respectfully) is an automatic win in my book. The other books on the list look great too. I even want to read The Last Werewolf, despite my general dislike of paranormal genre-fiction. It just sounds so smart and interesting.
This list is in NPR's Summer Books 2011 subgroup. Generally, I don't have real "summer reads." I mostly just read whatever sounds interesting that I didn't have time to read while I was at school. Do you distinguish between summer and other reads?
