Summer book lists announced

If you’re like me, you take the decision of what book to pack in your travel bag as seriously as deciding where to vacation. Choose one that’s too short and I run out of reading material before my vacation’s over. Pick one that’s too long and I run the risk of never finishing it when I get back and my reading time’s curtailed. And let’s not even talk about choosing a book that just turns out to be dull…

Anyhow, it’s June now, so summer book lists and recommendations are blooming all over. Here’s a sample– happy reading!
