Summer Reads 2016

Home » News » #Friday Reads

It's about this time of year that here at Bibliophile we start collecting the books that we are going to read over the holidays... In the past (BC — before children) the luggage split was 50% books, 50% less important things. These days our free time for reading is more precious and so the need to choose wisely is more important than ever. To this end, Bibliophile has devised a fool proof system to ensure success with your summer reading, together with some of Bibliophile's choices.

First book has to be a tried and tested favourite. One you have read and re-read and re-read. An old friend...
Sense and Sensibilty — Jane Austin
To Kill a Mockingbird — Harper Lee

Then there's the long book that you know you need some serious time to read. One you can't read in the 10 minutes before falling asleep — it'd take you years...
Donna Tart — The Goldfinch
Justin Cronin — The Passage Trilogy

How about the book that you've been waiting to come out in paperback???
The Girl on the Train — Paula Hawkins
Go Set a Watchman — Harper Lee

Then the book you should be reading...
European Union Economics, Policy and History — Susan Senior Nello

Or the ones you have always pretended to have read but haven't...
War and Peace — Leo Tolstoy
The Odessy — Homer
Crime and Punishment — Fyodor Dostoevsky
Bleak House — Charles Dickens
Moby Dick — Herman Melville
The Complete Works of Shakespeare
(I could go on...)

Or those that you might not otherwise get round to...
Roy Hodgson — A Football Life — Richard Allen
Call Me Dave — Micheal Ashcroft
Have I Got Views for You — Boris Johnson

And of course, the guilty pleasure summer reads...
In the Name of Love — Katie Price
Mount! — Jilly Cooper
(only joking!)

So, whether it be on some far-flung, idyllic beach, or a rainy, windy bench in Prestatyn, let us know where you are and what you're reading. Send us a picture (like the one above of the Bibliophile team enjoying their summer reading) and we might even publish it!
