Rationale for Summer ReadingThe overarching goal of summer reading is to instill a love of reading and help you become a life-long learner. By engaging in summer reading, one is able to keep the mind engaged in intellectual pursuits. We have chosen to offer a summer reading list to provide ample opportunity and choice to read something that appeals to each individual reader. The minimum goal is to have everyone read at least one book over the summer. The choices are many and can meet the needs of any reading appetite. Choose something you enjoy; sports, travel, adventure, fantasy, mystery, whatever appeals to your own individual taste. But read at least one novel from the list and enjoy.
