Summer reading has now begun. Or sort of? We haven’t had specific displays called “Summer Reading” for a few years now and it still baffles me. We get in the same unnecessarily large amounts of Steinbeck and Austen, Dickens and Dostoyevsky, known summer reading titles, and we think we can fake people out with these “Summer beach reads” and “Books that make you think” displays?
I think the only thing that these displays have made people do is ask where our summer reading displays are.
