6 Sites for Summer Reading

Summer is near! Friday Fun for this week has summer reading suggestions. They come from an author, a librarian, and the librarian’s students. Check them out!
.Guys Read
This site is created by Jon Scieszka who has written many books, including The True Story of 3 Little Pigs and Math Curse. It’s dedicated to providing boys with books they want to read. A quote from the site:
This is the place to come if you’re looking for something to get a guy reading. We’ve collected recommendations from teachers, librarians, booksellers, publishers, parents, and guys themselves.
Girls – don’t be put off by the guy thing. These books should appeal to anyone looking for good books.
